Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Cornell Certificate Program

When:  Mar 27, 2024 from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM (CT)

A welcoming and supportive work environment is not just a nice-to-have, it can make or break an organization.

Executives, Managers, and Board Members—commit to going beyond mere compliance and make implementing a robust and sustainable management strategy at your credit union a priority.

As institutions shift to embrace environmental, social, and governance (ESG) philosophies in their business plans, this research-driven program will help credit unions shore up the social aspect of ESG, fostering employee engagement and empowerment while attracting new talent.

This program goes deep into the subject matter; students leave with an understanding of the perceptual, institutional, and psychological processes that impact the ways people interact with each other under the guidance of Michelle M. Duguid, Associate Professor, Associate Dean of Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging, SC Johnson College of Business, Cornell University.

Over the course of 3.5 MONTHS, 4 COURSES, and 2 LIVE-TAUGHT SESSIONS, we’ll balance academic research regarding employee engagement with practical, specific strategies. We’ll also explore:

  • Improving engagement
  • Counteracting unconscious bias
  • Fairness and belonging at work
  • Fostering a welcoming climate


Having a work environment that creates a sense of belonging leads to satisfied employees and a stronger future for your organization. Learn more about each course and session by visiting our “Curriculum” tab.
