diversity certification

Overview

The purpose of this course is to provide participants with the skills needed to successfully train even the most difficult group of participants. One of the most challenging training courses is the mandatory cultural diversity training. It is undervalued and poor trainers make the problem worse.

Even if you have an eager audience, your level of facilitation skill can turn them into discontented people wishing that they were somewhere else. Their learning experience is dependent on how well the facilitator manages the class and the landmines that surface along the way.

Goals

Upon completion of the course, participants will:

  • Better understand their training and facilitation skills
  • Understand the organizational inclusion change process
  • Develop a rationale for the inclusion plan
  • Understand how to use a Balanced Scorecard in the planning process.
  • Utilize the content to build a plan
  • Develop a continuous learning action plan

Participant Success Story

I have taken the CDP course in the past and other DELA courses. I am excited about completing the CDE. I have learned so much working with Dr. Billy over the years. I immediately realized after starting the strategic planning course that I needed to have completed that long before now – Dr. Billy had been encouraging me to do so based on what he knows about my work.

    want to sign up immediately. BTW it takes a long time for your site to download.

    • Kopenhavn October 12, 2020 @ 12:40 pm

      It was likely due to traffic to the site at the time, Linda. We will keep an eye on it.
