How to Lead So Every Voice is Heard

Diversity and inclusion (D&I) has become a business imperative for organizations all over the world. However there remains widespread confusion around what inclusion is and how to create it in everyday workplace situations. Inclusive Leadership is an immersive, interactive digital program designed to provide leaders with the concrete communication tools they need to create inclusive teams and inclusive workplaces. The goal: to enable participants to confidently get the most out of diverse teams by making every person they work with feel included.

Your cohort will work through five modules and a series of electives at your own pace. You'll come together for three scheduled meetings on Fridays from 11am-12pm CT. Coursework will total approximately 4 hours per week.

Inclusive Leadership, the Learning Experience

The Online Course Experience

Our online programs require approximately 4 hours per week for course work. At your own pace, you'll participate in on-demand learning modules consisting of videos, case studies, reflections, and conversations with other course participants. This experience will broaden your perspective and enhance the skills you use to power your work. Online courses also include live virtual learning sessions at regular points throughout the program. These scheduled meetings are an opportunity to deepen your connections with peers as well as connect directly with faculty as you discuss course topics.
