Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategist Certification


When an organization lacks a specific, measurable, and impact driven plan for diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts, unintended outcomes are inevitable, and actions are perceived as performative.  Strategy is the foundation of inclusive organizations.  That is why diversity, equity, and inclusion practitioners must be skillful strategists. 

RIOTT for Change has perfected the art of strategic road mapping for organizations.  We offer a unique, two-day certification program for any professional who desires to facilitate diversity, equity, inclusion strategy sessions within their respective organizations or with clients.  Professional certification provides credibility and signals expertise in a specific discipline.  At the end of the two days, practitioners are equipped to help organizations create an impactful strategy that is supported by measurable outcomes.
