Registration is now open for our Antiracism certificate. This general audience certificate is essential to your learning and development needs on racism in the workplace - its institutional origins, and how to dismantle it. It is a carefully curated bundle course which progresses you beyond the fundamentals learned in our Foundations certificate of D&I courses and delves deeper into some of the subjects taken in the Influencer certificate bundle. 

Join us for this highly topical and critical learning and development offering, for any Canadian workplace that is intentional about understanding the causes of structural racism and building the confidence and capacity to dismantle the systems which perpetuate it. Learn more...
