D&I Credentials with Bottom-Line Impact
IDC'S FOCUS: The Business of D&I, Outcomes & Sustainability
IDC is obsessed with great results! Our program hinges on tying D&I to the bottom line in order to achieve effectiveness and sustainability. The Certified Diversity Professional (CDP)™ and Certified Diversity Executive (CDE)™ credentials are unique indicators of success in equity, diversity and inclusion work. Both credentials are recognized by organizations throughout the U.S. and around the world. The difference between the two credentials is that the CDP enables an organization to broaden its definition of diversity and effectively manage the day-to-day aspects of inclusion. The CDE program takes your effort to the next level by helping you to ask important questions such as: Now that we have diversity, what do we do? How do we transition from mere buzz words to genuine inclusion, innovation, and agility? And how do we improve the organizational culture? Hence, the CDE goes beyond representation toward diversity of thought. Read the brochure
Unlike some programs with a heavy emphasis on theory, the CDP and CDE programs are developed BY Diversity and Inclusion leaders FOR Diversity and Inclusion leaders. Therefore, we include a heavy dose of data, case studies, best practices, and real life solutions.
