The Centennial Certificate in Leadership and Inclusion is a leadership development certificate program designed for managers, leaders, HR, diversity professionals, and individual contributors. It applies diversity and inclusion practices to leadership issues in the workplace. You will gain insights into improved team performance and bring a competitive edge to employee learning.

The Certificate consists of four online courses that span 7.5 weeks each. To complete the four courses in the certificate program, participants need to commit a total of 30 weeks. The total student effort will be approximately 30 hours per course or approximately four hours per week.
The courses are delivered entirely online (currently only available in English) via the Centennial eLearning portal. Lessons will be delivered through recorded webinars, videos, simulations, readings, and online discussions with facilitators and other students.
The program has been designed for busy working people managers and experienced individual contributors who aspire to leadership positions and who are interested in learning how to be inclusive leaders and advance diversity and inclusion in their organizations. These include:
This certificate would be relevant to people working in the public, nonprofit, or private sector; in any industry, and any size of organization. Because the courses are delivered online, learners can take this certificate from anywhere in the world. However, keep in mind: materials will emphasize Canadian diversity and inclusion issues.
