The DEI Training through the Center for Executive Excellence is thought-provoking, heartwarming and encouraging. The weekly micro-lessons are informative and easily digestible, and the weekly lead discussions are an incredible touchpoint to connect with your cohort, reflect on the trainings completed while having incredible conversations. I cannot think of a better way to start or build upon your journey working in DEI.

David Comstock

Assistant Vice President, M&T Bank

My experience so far has been affirming. Being able to come together to with other DEI practitioners to talk about our experience with the subject matter, really allowed us to dig deep into our own feelings and establish or re-establish our reason for doing the work. The connection gave me confidence and affirmation that I was on the right track.

EARN YOUR DIGITAL CREDENTIALS

WHAT ARE DIGITAL CREDENTIALS?

Center for Executive Excellence is proud to offer digital credentials for our DEI training programs. Known as digital badges, these credentials are a visual indicator of accomplishments or skills that can be displayed, accessed, and verified online.

Digital badges are available for both DEI training tracks: Facilitated or On-Demand.  You have the opportunity to earn up to 4 badges, one for each level of our DEI training program.

HOW DO DIGITAL CREDENTIALS WORK?
