DEI Propel™ is an experiential programme designed to help diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI/EDI) professionals, allies and organizations jumpstart and sustain their DEI/EDI efforts.

This course isn’t about quick fixes. You still have to put in the work. But the big question is always – HOW? This in-person and highly interactive programme is designed to help you develop and effectively implement a DEI/EDI Strategy for your organization. And it's grounded in evidence-based change management practices.

 
 

Programme Overview

Many organizations doing DEI/EDI work don’t have a solid strategy. The primary goal of this programme is to provide step-by-step guidance in developing a customized, data and outcome driven DEI/EDI Roadmap for your organization, department or team. We don't just tell you what to do but show you how to do it. The content is practical, can be applied immediately, and produces results.

Results-Focused

Much of the DEI/EDI work is comprised of activities that lack focus or substance. To experience positive and long-term results, you must have a solid strategy that is based on outcomes and not just outputs. When you complete this course, you will walk away with a strategy that can be implemented immediately.



Interactive and Collaborative

Activities are designed to help you reflect on and assess where your organization or department is on the DEI/EDI journey and what strategies you need to move the work forward.



Grounded in Best Practices and Research

Content is grounded in solid evidence-based research. The programme is professionally accredited. In addition, we've curated a list of first-class supplemental resources on leading practices and the latest DEI/EDI and cultural intelligence research. You will also receive a Certificate of Completion.



Expert Coaching and Peer Learning

Once you complete the live one-day course, we don’t just send you out to do this work by yourself. You become part of a community of DEI/EDI leaders where you can continue to share, network and learn from the DEI/EDI Propel community. Also, in the first 90 days following the in-person session, you’ll have the opportunity to interact directly with me for coaching and to answer your questions.
