Great Companies Trust TDM

We’ve been the trusted training partner for thousands of employees, elevating their skills through content, certifications, courses, and workshops.

Like many practitioners, I came into the DEI space knowing the “why”--what I needed was to learn how to implement those principles. TDM’s Diversity Leader’s Intensive, compared to any other course I researched, is unparalleled in its practicality and value add. This is an investment far beyond just getting a certificate--you'll have every resource you need to weave genuine diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging into every aspect of your organization.

Spencer Lessin Community Engagement Coordinator, RTP

The instructors at TDM are knowledgeable, relatable, and create a space for growth, introspection, and community. I instantly felt at home with a bunch of strangers on zoom and I looked forward to our sessions when we could learn from each other as well as from the instructors. I highly recommend this to anyone working in a DEI space looking for opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills.

Analise Herrera, MS, BCBA, LBA

This course had valuable knowledge to apply to DE&I efforts to have a lasting impact on organizations. I feel more confident in having discussions with others and the benefits of DE&I work within an organization. Thanks to The Diversity Movement!

Tameka Davis Diversity Director, Raleigh Metro SHRM

It was absolutely incredible, extremely impactful learning from thought leaders in the industry, and having access to every single person at The Diversity Movement, from the CEO all the way down to their training staff and support staff. Everyone was extremely supportive, kind, and the cohort model was amazing. Being a part of the beta cohort has absolutely prepared me to be a better professional, and most importantly, a better DEI practitioner.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is DEI training important?

DEI training ensures that leaders and organizations are staying ahead of emerging trends and best practices. Continuous learning guarantees that practitioners are implementing proven and contemporary practices.

What are diversity certifications?

Diversity certifications are any in-depth training on a DEI topic, whether on unconscious bias, allyship, or something else altogether, and range from 1 hour to several weeks. Generally speaking, certifications are accredited and certificates are not, although the terms are used interchangeably. A certification may come with a badge, certificate of completion, or professional designation verifying the learner’s attendance and newfound expertise on the topic. 

What is the best diversity and inclusion certification?

The best diversity and inclusion certification is largely based on a person’s role within their organization and their organization’s DEI competency. Out of our programs, the Intensive and CDP are best for DEI practitioners – with the Intensive focusing more on execution and the CDP focusing more on theory – and the CDE is best for executives.
