The Struggle and Why YOU Should Take This Course

Early in my career, I wasted months trying to manage teams with diversity. Despite all of my efforts, I was completely lost because:

  • I lacked a formal background in diversity and inclusion
  • The courses offered in the industry were either too jargon-filled, or lacked the sufficient depth.
  • I didn’t have insider tips nor the right resources on how to manage hard conversations around race, gender, and disability.

To become a better management professional, I went down the rabbithole to understand what it takes to build successful organizational culture from the inside out. I interviewed thought-leaders within the industry. I learned the behaviors and habits of successful managers of diverse teams. Empowered with this knowledge, I began to scale global teams with lots of diversity.

Within 3 years, I went from never managing anyone outside the United States to managing teams across the world based in countries including Pakistan, Spain, Brazil, and more. I learned about their cultures, diversity needs, and how to provide a workplace of inclusion for them. Today, I have worked and partnered with HR companies including BambooHR, Zenefits, and Gusto to further this understanding of HR management.

I created the Diversity and Inclusion Certification Course so that no one else had to go through the painful experience that I went through to become more experienced.

The Diversity and Inclusion Certification Course was created for management professionals, HR professionals, or people who want to brush up on their human resources skills. In this course, I teach: fundamentals of diversity and inclusion, how to create a great organizational culture, and how to implement D&I strategies from succession planning to training.

To be successful as a manager, you need to learn how to provide an inclusive workplace. Over my career, I’ve helped hundreds of people become more organizationally focused and handle hard conversations around race, gender, culture, and disability. I’ve compiled everything I’ve learned into this Diversity and Inclusion Certification Course to put you on the fast track towards success.”
