Diversity & Inclusion Professional Certificate

Overview

Can your organization measure D&I and identify the business units that will deliver it? The key to these skills is gaining an understanding of ISO-30415:2021 by earning a Diversity & Inclusion Professional Certificate from UGA Executive Education. This program is presented in partnership with Inclusion Score, the operating system for assessing D&I organizational risk. With training from established experts in this area, you’ll learn to minimize risk by creating inclusive business processes ─ from hiring practices to communications to supplier diversity. Upon completing the program, you’ll receive a certificate verifying your understanding of ISO-30415:2021 and certification by Inclusion Score.

If you ask ten professionals what Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (D&I) means, you may receive ten different answers. Do you fully understand this crucial area? Are you successfully managing its associated risks?

Set yourself apart by earning a Terry College of Business certificate based on current international D&I standards.
