Gain a better understanding of what diversity and inclusion means in the workforce. The graduate certificate in Diversity and Inclusion prepares professionals to understand the importance of racial and ethnic identities, cultural backgrounds, ages, skill sets, languages, and other identifying markers that employees possess. These skills are highly sought after by today’s employers and would be beneficial to business administrators, health care professionals, government employees, educators, and non-profit organizations.
We are being tasked with managing a more diverse work environment. The Online Graduate Certificate in Diversity and Inclusion prepares students to become proactive ensuring that they understand the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, as a way to become more employable and to continue their professional development.
A lack of diversity and inclusion is one of the top risk factors for workplace harassment, according to the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Students must submit a transcript showing an awarded bachelors degree, have an overall undergraduate grade point average of 2.50 or better and 3.00 on all previous graduate level coursework (both on a 4.00 point scale).
Program requirements may change at any time. Contact the DGC of your intended program to confirm requirements.
