Whether racial, gender based, disability based or any identity based prejudices, people of many social identities are subjected to discrimination every day, in society and at work. And although much of the work to manage diversity and inclusion in the workplace has focused on creating equality, utilizing diversity networks, identifying inequitable practices and hosting events, if the SYSTEMS that create a disparate impact are not addressed, you’re only focusing on the symptoms.

Since the death of George Floyd, and the COVID19 pandemic, cracks in the systems have been highlighted (legal, financial, housing, medical, recruiting, employee engagement and more) there has been a mind shift in the way that people view the overall effectiveness of DEI efforts, particularly when they are stand-alone and do not form part of a comprehensive DEI strategy and change agenda. In this program you will discover the systems that support supreme thinking, and the trickle down impact of policies and practices that were built to favor any one society of people.

This course is only $349

This 2 week stand-alone certificate course will help participants understand how to uncover inequities in their organization’s policies, practices and programs, and the

IDPI’s Dismantling Systems that uphold Discrimination program is an industry-leading training workshop for all of your organizational leaders. Upon completion of the certification, participants will:

  • Discuss and share ways different systems of inequities impact us at the societal, organizational and individual level. knowledge systems and reflecting on one’s own biases and privilege.
  • Identify issues surrounding sexism, racism, and other forms of systemic discrimination within a systems, cognitive and emotional context and the impact on representation, or the lack thereof.
  • Utilize organizational development and communications tools to DISRUPT discriminatory practices in the workplace or in their community.

[/fusion_tab][fusion_tab title=”Topics & What’s Inside”]

Let’s take a look inside

-Isms and -Phobias are discriminatory (and often hostile) beliefs and behaviors based in stereotypes, fear and ignorance. Whether it is racISM, ableISM, ageISM, sexISM or any other form of discrimination, the impact on communities of people is dismissive, divisive, dehumanizing, insulting and results in varied forms of oppression.

We’ve heard these words thrown around in our everyday lives, but what do they really mean? In this course we highlight the intersections of many isms and phobias and how they affect an individual’s mental, physical and emotional health as well as the impact it has on work relationships. We’ll explore the impact when the inequalities and inequities that people often face creates conditions for perpetuating discrimination and prejudice, and how these marginalizing experiences, when gone unchecked, has a larger societal impact.

The “DISMANTLING DISCRIMINATION” certificate program is developed and validated by university professionals trained at Harvard University,UC Berkeley, UC Davis and University of Central Missouri. The “Dismantling Discrimination” certificate requirements include:

  • 4 On-demand courses
  • 1 interactive webinar
  • 4 Worksheets
  • 1 interactive learning game
  • 1 participant presentation
  • Perspective taking exercises

TOPICS WE’LL EXPLORE ARE:

The most common isms and phobias in the workplace

The 8 most common “isms” within society are Racism, Sexism, Hetrosexism, Ageism, Ableism, Classism, Anti Semitism, and Fascism. We’ll explore the most common that show up in the workplace to:

  • Understand the historical context and definitions of ” each of the ‘ism” terms.

  • Learn how they have been normalized and embedded in society and in the workplace.

  • Gain strategies to disrupt and uproot the harm caused by the discriminatory policies and practices within the workplace.

  • Learn how you can take care of yourself and others in the process of advocating for changes in dismantling discrimination.


Intersectional effects of discrimination

Hate-motivated behavior poses a threat to the population’s well-being, especially for vulnerable populations. These targeted groups are often harmed over and over again in both subtle and overt ways.

Documented factors associated with the commission of hate-motivated behavior are largely demographic and layered based on individual-level characteristics along with other social identities. Efforts and intervention strategies addressing hate-motivated behavior will be addressed across structural, interpersonal, and individual levels.


Mental, physical and emotional health of predators and victims of discrimination

Hate-motivated behavior is a public health threat with structural, interpersonal, and individual antecedents and effects. There is interdisciplinary research to help us better understand the causes of such behavior, and the impacts of people who are victimized. By looking at both sides of discrimination we can better understand and test prevention strategies and interventions.
