Building Cultural Intelligence Certificate Series

Creating culturally intelligent organizations and workspaces has become increasingly important in today’s society. Working towards creating EDI goals will improve the efficiency, recruitment, and retention of employees. Specifically, we need to create systems for all employees to feel empowered, safe and equipped to do their best work. In response to the need for practical knowledge and strategies to implement Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, (EDI), this series was developed to help business leaders, supervisors, and employees advance EDI goals within their organizations. 

Building Cultural Intelligence Certificate Series is a three-part series that lays the foundation for participants to support diversity and inclusion in their workplaces and personal lives. The tiered courses allow participants to create a common understanding and language around diversity topics before they come together to bring the theory to practice in their organizations. The culminating course focuses on strategies for employees at any level to work toward equity and inclusivity within their sphere of influence. 

Tier 1: 

  • Safe Spaces: Honoring Gender and Sexuality in the Workplace
  • Microaggressions and Bias in the Workplace 

Tier 2: 

  • Strategies for Creating Culturally Intelligent Organizations 

*Please note: prerequisites for Tier 2 programs include ‘Microaggressions and Bias in the Workplace’ and ‘Safe Spaces: Honoring Gender and Sexuality in the Workplace’.  

‘Building Cultural Intelligence Certificate’ is earned after the three programs are completed. Attend all three programs to earn a certificate in ‘Building Cultural Intelligence’. All programs will be offered on multiple dates, allowing for convenience and flexibility for completing the Certificate.
