Online Course Highlights

Cultivate Diverse Workplaces and Communities

We all benefit from diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) advancements. Beyond reflecting Miami University's work, passion, and commitment to DEI, these in-depth online modules offer fresh insights and best practices for cultivating diverse communities and workplaces.

Effectively Lead Diverse Teams

Well-managed diverse workplaces are more competitive, successful, and innovative than non-diverse ones. They have better team problem-solving abilities and exhibit less intergroup anxiety because they include different backgrounds and ways of thinking. Lead and support a thriving workplace and community by exploring critical diversity, equity, and inclusion concepts and strategies.

Strive Toward Equity

A more inclusive society helps to build a better world. Put your best foot forward as a leader, team and community member, and ally. Nurture your cultural intelligence by recognizing and harnessing the importance of intersecting identities and cultural differences. Equip yourself with the tools to recognize and prevent microaggressions and biased behaviors.

Put Inclusion into Practice

Taken together as a certificate or individually, these in-depth online modules lend more than just an understanding of DEI concepts and trends. Miami University's renowned faculty will provide you with ideas for actionable steps and solutions.
