For leadership to be effective in the ongoing workplace evolution, those in positions of authority require a deeper, revolutionary, and transformational awareness of inclusive diversity and workplace equity. They must be equipped with the capacity and capabilities to identify and deal with natural prejudicial tendencies while fostering a mentality that is fair, just, welcoming, and non-discriminatory.

They will also learn the fundamentals of intrapersonal intelligence, emotional intelligence, cultural intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and other types of intelligence that help to effectively manage the complexities of leadership psychology and sensitivity in communication while connecting with other participants in the conversation.

This program uses a series of virtual workshops, coaching & online microlearning videos & quizzes to educate and empower executives, managers, consultants and contractors with the tips, tools, training, and techniques to ensure their continuous development. They will also learn how to engage their staff, transform their mindset and foster a corporate culture that is diverse, equitable, inclusive and cohesive.

This comprehensive course was developed in six months at the City of Brampton, Ontario, in collaboration with the Toronto Metropolitan University's Diversity Institute.
