UGA Diversity & Inclusion Professional Certificate Program, Oct 4 – 25, Online
Can your organization measure D&I, identify opportunities to improve, and implement them? 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.
This online program introduces the ISO-30415:2021 standard via the D&I Service Management (DISM) Lifecycle framework. The program features weekly live sessions with internationally recognized lecturers, Q&As to demonstrate the Inclusion Maturity Model Integration (IMMI) and uses cases across organizational governance, product delivery, human resources, and supply chain management.
  • Orientation, September 27: Program Overview
  • Week 1, October 4: Understanding the 32 Risk Domains
  • Week 2, October 11: Maturity Models
  • Week 3, October 18: Defining the 27 Diversity Types
  • Week 4, October 25: Preparing for Certification Exam
This program requires online work for 2 to 4 hours per week using an Inclusion Score case study application activity. Participation is expected in weekly live remote sessions from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. EST on October 4, 11, 18, and 25. The total program cost is $1250 per person.
