Management Certificate Program Modules

Finally, a Management Certificate through the JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion) lens! Most leadership failures in organizations are rarely about lack of technical or content expertise but rather people and relationship management— an area managers are rarely trained in.  These four foundational leadership modules—Authentic Management, Deep Diversity, Brave Conversations and Authentic Facilitation— will walk you through best practices, theory/ research and case scenarios of how to lead in a twenty-first century context across complex differences of all kinds, in conditions of high intensity.  This is a unique approach to leadership that is rooted in compassion and to challenging and undoing systemic barriers that exist to equitable work conditions for all employees.

Throughout each module, you will find a strong focus on developing internal leadership muscles for external impact: a grounding in psychological literacy and management skills to create positive, inclusive and successful teams and organizations.  We aim to support leaders who are change-makers— those who know that creating environments where everyone matters and belongs is at the foundation of success.

This is the online management version (vs. the in-person leadership version) of our certification process offering:

  • Accessibility and flexibility
  • Full access to core curriculum
  • Course materials and learning assessments* (*upon completion of each course)
  • Engagement through video, audio and articles
  • Interactive webinars to peer review, discuss and receive guidance from course leaders
  • Badge upon completion of each course and track progress to full certification
  • A digital* “Inclusive Management Certificate” upon completion recognizing the range of skills acquired. *This can be downloaded/printed for your own records

The timeline is entirely up to you. You may choose to do all four modules in the same year, or spread them out over multiple years.  If you register for all courses in the same year, you will receive a 25% discount (off full price) for each module.  If you have already taken some of the trainings listed, you are partway there!  You can substitute one online course for any in-person course and still receive the leadership certificate.
