Yes, it is about understanding, embracing and championing diversity and inclusion; but it is so much more. It is about personal effectiveness, leadership development, relationships and developing high-performance teams. This class is an unforgettable experience of growth, reflection and commitment. While many organizations offer diversity or leadership courses, very few combine both into one course. And we have never seen a course in 20 plus years of teaching diversity and inclusion incorporate all the above listed elements into one impactful learning experience. It is for that reason, coupled with the innovative, dynamic, engaging teaching methodologies that the process for many is transformational and, for all, a life-long remembered experience.
