Certificate Overview
75% of the world’s major conflicts have a cultural dimension and the culture sector now accounts for 6.1% of the global economy. The United Nations reports that creative and cultural industries (CCI) generate annual revenues of US$ 2,250 billion and nearly 30 million jobs worldwide, employing more people aged 15 to 29 than any other sector. To improve diversity, achieve equity, and foster inclusion one must be intentional, consistent, and courageous.
LERN’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the Workplace Certificate focuses on improving cultural competence and encourages continuous learning. Students will gain a better understanding of DEI.
DEI Definitions
Diversity, Equity, and inclusion (DEI) is not just a phrase; each word speaks to distinct values.
Diversity: The representation of different and unique identities, characteristics, experiences, and perspectives.
Equity: Giving everyone what they need to succeed by increasing access, resources, and opportunities for all, especially those who are underrepresented and have been disadvantaged.
Inclusion: A welcoming culture in which differences are celebrated and everyone is valued and respected.
