    What our Leaders are saying…


      The Project for Change helps and forces the learner to be thinking about how they can put the content to use. It aids in accountability when going through the curriculum.

      Truly an awesome program and I really enjoyed it and I really enjoyed the flow of the DEI Mater Practitioner Certification Program. Each module moved seamlessly to the next. I’m excited to share my experience with friends, family, and colleagues.

      Having an advisor through the program was very important for me because the guidance of an expert is extremely helpful as you can run into questions about the program or even what to do with all the information you are learning and having clarity from someone who can respond those questions is very helpful. Also, being able to finish the program with a Project for Change ready to launch for your company is such a plus.

      I really liked how the course brings together content in various mediums instead of strictly reading white papers, etc. My advisor was incredible help to me. She guided me through the Project for Change and answered my questions quickly. She also encouraged me and motivated me along the way.

      I really liked the Project for Change because that was part of the adult-learning model where I was asked to bring what I learned into my own life and work and reflect on it. I would say going through that exercise was the most beneficial part of the course.

      What I liked the most about this certification program was the inner reflection it caused, and the awareness to a business environment!

      Karla H.
      Mintel Consulting

      The advisor component made the DEI Certification Program standout from other opportunities. I think this component creates more accountability, and a collaborative environment vs. “just an online course”.

      I would have to say that it was the insight. Even when you think you know, there’s more to know. In the case of DEI Certification Program, I had layers removed from my eyes I did not know were there.

      History & Background because knowing what got us to this place greatly informs what still needs to be changed.

      Measurement Tools and Approaches because assessing an organization’s practices and measuring change confirms the effectiveness of change initiatives.
