2-Day Diversity & Inclusion Certificate Program:
The Race to Disrupt Unconscious Bias in the Workplace

Everyone nowadays is talking about Diversity and Inclusion, about disrupting the unconscious bias that we all have and people ask, “why now, why now?”. Well, why not now?  Why have we not done this before?

For the last 60 years, when Title VII of the Civil Rights Act was enacted, we have been trying to ensure that everyone is treated equally, but we are failing in some aspects. The coronavirus allowed us to be distracted from our everyday obligations and during the year 2020 as people were forced to lock up at home, plus the events following the death of George Floyd on May 25, many people questioned the unfairness of treating people differently, specifically examining people’s unconscious bias.

Whether it is equal pay, equal opportunities for people with disabilities, for veterans, respect for people’s religions, Black Lives Matter, marriage equality, Me Too movement, and the fact of having a vice president who is a woman, these things came all together. The years after 2020 have been some of the most significant years in a long time in which all different groups that felt inequality existed could voice their opinions and feelings on how they were being treated. What some of these movements are doing is fighting against unconscious bias. Nowadays, people can voice their opinions more than ever before due to technology, specifically social media. People don’t feel like they are alone anymore, and they know their voices are being heard.

Diversity and Inclusion training is not a new trend, rather a standard management practice critical in organizations today since it lays a solid foundation based on respect and welcoming of individuals’ differences. Diversity and Inclusion matters to every organization and every employee because with Diversity and Inclusion, an organization can develop a more cohesive, collaborative, innovative, creative work environment that can drive continued success and growth to the company.
