Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: From Concept to Application - Virtual Learning

Why Attend

Strengthening Equity, Diversity and Inclusion starts with a clear strategy and ends with its application. Movements worldwide have pushed employers to look more closely at Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) because companies committed to EDI programs reflect that responsibility in their practices. These companies defend equity, Diversity, and inclusion and enjoy the benefits of attracting talented employees and profiting from their innovation while reducing the expensive costs of discrimination.

This training course combines conceptual discussions and practical applications to help you become a more effective and inclusive champion.
