COMPETENCY-BASED EDUCATION WITH BOTTOM-LINE IMPACT
OUR MISSION: EXCELLENCE
We set the bar for excellence in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion work through rigorous, professional qualification standards.

GLOBALLY RECOGNIZED CREDENTIALS
As an affiliate of the Society for Diversity, IDC conferred its first credentials in 2011. Today, there are thousands of candidates and designees around the world. Our credentials are recognized by employers as a symbol of inclusive excellence and achievement.
