CCDI’s eLearning programs are designed to help organizations advance in their diversity and inclusion journey in a way that is time and cost effective, while adhering to adult learning principles and best practices. The 30-minute modules maximize the reach, impact and sustainability of your learning initiatives.

The content of our programs is informed by the latest research in diversity and inclusion, and our experience in working with Canada’s largest workplaces to support their diversity and inclusion journeys. Our programs prioritize being concise and interactive. We provide learners with practical tips, tools and techniques to help them shift their behaviours towards inclusion. We avoid “information-dumping,” and use scenarios to engage learners and provide immediately applicable solutions to real-life challenges.

Universal Instructional Design

In designing our courses, we adhere to the principles of Universal Instructional Design (UID). UID is a process that considers the potential needs of learners when designing and delivering instruction, to remove barriers and ensure the quality of the learning experience is consistent for all learners, regardless of their level of ability.

Diversity and inclusion fundamentals

This program provides participants with a robust, shared understanding of what we talk about when we refer to diversity and inclusion, and why diversity and inclusion are keys to the success of organizations as well as individuals.

By the end of the program, learners will be able to:

  • Differentiate between representation and diversity, and between equity, equality and inclusion.
  • Describe the business case for developing a work culture that values diversity and is inclusive of all.
  • Understand how their own dimensions of diversity impact their worldview and workplace behaviours.
  • Plan/visualize inclusive behaviours they can immediately implement in the workplace.

This course is available in a customizable text-based version, as well as a brand-new video-based version entitled SHIFT.

Managing bias in hiring

This program is designed to help talent leaders (recruiters, human resources professionals and people managers) to ensure that inclusive processes and practices support the recruitment of a diverse, forward-thinking and innovative workforce.

By the end of the program, learners will be able to:

  • Identify when bias might be affecting their hiring decisions
  • Recognize the possible consequences of bias
  • Develop alternative approaches to help minimize the effects of bias on hiring.

Unconscious bias

This program tackles one of the most pervasive barriers to inclusion in the workplace: conscious and unconscious bias. By leveraging the experience of participants through discussion and group activity, we explore the sources and mechanics of bias, its impact and cyclicality.

By the end of the program, learners will be able to:

  • Define conscious and unconscious bias
  • Describe how biases are acquired
  • Recognize workplace behaviours and decisions that may be influenced by bias
  • Apply strategies to manage the effects of unconscious bias in the workplace.
