DEI Practitioner Master Class

NLI’s DEI Practitioner Master Class is designed for professionals doing day-to-day DEI work within organizations. 

This is a virtual program, for DEI practitioners anywhere in the world, that guides you through a DEI action planning toolkit that helps you build a science-based DEI action plan for your organization.

Using NLI’s research as a foundation, the class focuses on practical, science-based approaches to such real-life challenges as making diversity a priority,  embedding inclusion as a habit, and building systems that enable equity. 

The 12-week program is SHRM-accredited for 30 professional development credits.

NLI’s DEI Practitioner Master Class program will give you the opportunity to dive deep into our research and take a scientific perspective to drive DEI results that will impact your organization.

In addition to live facilitated discussions, you will work your way through a DEI Action Planning Toolkit that will require you to have conversations with key individuals in your organization and uncover critical organizational challenges.
