DEIA Allyship Certificate

Now more than ever, we need spaces to learn, spaces to push ourselves and each other, and spaces to practice new ways of doing social justice work. We also need spaces to meet others in this work so we can create a community that will sustain us for the long road ahead. To build space that supports our collective learning and community, Strategic Diversity Initiatives draws from decades of experience to offer the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Allyship Certificate Program.

This is a recurring series offered three times each year. If you are unable to attend all six workshops in one session, you can make up workshops in the following session.
