Courageous Inclusion Course

Creating a workplace where everyone can thrive

The Courageous Inclusion course invites people to adopt a mindset that promotes diversity and inclusion. The course teaches learners a process to become more knowledgeable and active proponents of inclusion in their workplace, based on diversity and inclusion expert Jennifer Brown’s proven developmental continuum. This approach allows learners to diagnose where they are and where they want to be on diversity and inclusion issues. Courageous Inclusion helps participants take what they learn in the course and identify what they must do to become a more active and engaged force for inclusion.
