To meet demand for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) professionals, The Diversity Movement launches “The Diversity Leader’s Blueprint to Strategy and Implementation”

Raleigh, N.C. (August 18, 2021) — Human resources leaders across industries are challenged to meet the growing demand for diversity professionals. In response, The Diversity Movement created an online course: “The Diversity Leader’s Blueprint to Strategy and Implementation.”

Created by a team of business executives, diversity experts, and teachers, The Diversity Leader’s Blueprint to Strategy and Implementation offers a best-practice roadmap to creating, measuring, and sustaining organization-wide transformation. The 5-hour, 5-module course ($999) was developed from The Diversity Movement’s real-time, data-driven client insights, as well as industry-leading analysis, change management literature, and innovative ideas regarding workplace culture.

The course received strong reviews from beta users, including one Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer at an international law firm, who said: 

“The most comprehensive and meticulously thought out DEI course ever. Realistic, business-oriented, innovative, and highly positive approach to DEI programs implementation is exactly what young DEI leaders need to become more self-confident in their own success. The material is easily navigable, accessible to all types of learners, and downloadable. Highly recommend this unique and professional course.”

“What we are witnessing across the business world is an influx of new diversity leaders who want to learn how to design a DEI strategy, avoid pitfalls in implementation, gain buy-in, and create sustainable, scalable change, but often they don’t have the experience to create transformational business outcomes through DEI,” said Jackie Ferguson, certified diversity executive and co-founder at The Diversity Movement. “The Diversity Leader’s Blueprint to Strategy and Implementation provides a roadmap for this critical work.”  

According to research, diversity positions as a share of all job postings rose 18% in 2018, 30% in 2019, and a whopping 123% in 2020. Yet most of these roles are new to the organization. Many of the leaders stepping into these positions have little (or no) experience in leading a strategy-based, data-driven DEI program. 

Studies, however, reveal the power of workplaces that are more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Benefits of strategic DEI include: greater innovation, profitability, productivity, employee happiness, and market reach. 

As part of their product suite of online courses and technology tools for DEI learning, The Diversity Leader’s Blueprint to Strategy and Implementation marks a new turn for the organization, pushing their expertise beyond foundational learning, as provided in their Diversity: Beyond the Checkbox course, to more specialized training for career professionals.
