You will learn this in Diversity and inclusion

Just as no two individuals are alike, no two teams or organizations are alike either. That means there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution to achieving an inclusive culture. Yet certain universal principles will benefit you, no matter which specific diversity-related challenges your team or organization are facing.

After giving you an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of diversity and inclusion, this course includes inspiration sessions, assignments and challenges to put your diversity knowledge, cultural awareness and inclusive behavior into practice. You’ll gain the knowledge and awareness that your need to drive behavior change for yourself and those around you.


  • Your colleagues feel included and respected as valuable team members
  • Your colleagues feel engaged and capable of offering their best performance
  • Your colleagues contribute to maintaining an inclusive culture in the team


Some of the topics covered in this course include knowing what diversity and inclusion are, and why they are important, understanding how diversity influences and benefits your organization, and learning to enhance employee engagement through greater inclusivity. You will also delve into the neuroscience behind unconscious bias, confront your own personal biases and understand their impact, and learn how to take specific steps towards inclusive leadership. Additionally, the course will cover creating a psychologically safe working environment and developing your own action plan for achieving sustainable inclusivity at work.
