Combine e-Learning for All Staff with our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Champion & Train-the-Trainer Certificate Program!

Through the Foundations e-Learning, the entire organization gains the essential core mindset that are the building blocks for true change

Through the Certificate Program, key organizational members obtain the skills, insights and tools to build on the e-Learning to increase and maintain full inclusion, diversity and equity

All in-house Diversity and Inclusion trainers have noble motivations, but not all possess the skills and knowledge necessary to be truly effective in enacting lasting positive change. In fact, published scientific evidence demonstrates that haphazard diversity, and inclusion trainings that are not based in psychological science can sometimes create unexpected harmful outcomes. To be effective as a trainer, you must not only have the most current knowledge but also understand the perspectives of a wide variety of learners and have the personal strength and evidence-based strategies to teach individuals with different motivations, traits, and attitudes.

Our in-person “Train-the-Trainer” program is tailored to address your organization’s specific challenges. In a rigorous, science-backed process, trainers learn how to establish the safety and trust that are essential prerequisites for effective learning. Our program instructs trainers to foster learning (vs. performance) orientations and growth (vs. fixed) mindsets among training participants to better enable your teams to overcome bias and prevent discrimination. Trainers also learn how to develop and adapt case studies and role-playing activities which are then used to facilitate understanding and skill building.

As part of Diversity Science’s Train-the-Trainer program, you’ll have access to helpful supplemental materials will support what you’ve learned and help you operationalize and implement the concepts and strategies to fit your organization’s needs. You will also have access to leading experts in the field, who will help answer your personal questions and provide guidance and support.

  • Training materials including facilitator guide/ curriculum, content slides, access to our evidence-based eLearning foundations courses, small and large group activities, and resources and handouts
  • Live distance video training sessions (webinars) that are a combination of new learning, trouble-shooting, case application, and rehearsal
  • Access to written resources and emerging and established scientific research via a continuously-updated web portal
  • Two certificate options: DEI Champions I: Foundations or DEI Champions II: Advanced
