The Certificate in Diversity in the Workplace examines ways that culture, gender, race, class, and sexual orientation affect behavior, values and effectiveness in work settings. Students are asked to consider the personal and professional implications of these complex issues with an eye toward effecting positive change in the workplace. They learn to identify and address unjust power dynamics, and develop leadership skills that contribute to inclusive, respectful and productive work environments.
Graduates of the program gain a greater understanding of diversity in the workplace, thus enhancing workplace performance. They also acquire an introduction into the study of psychology, sociology, and leadership.
