Becoming a Diversity Ally
Updated: May 21, 2021
Recently, I completed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion certification program at Northwestern University. I took the course for both professional and personal reasons.
Professionally, my aim is to work with organizations to develop and implement pro-active diversity, equity, and inclusion communications strategies and plans. On a personal note, I wanted to educate myself to understand how I can be an advocate and an ally for change.
This class began just as my mom passed and I wasn't sure if I would be able to complete it. I am glad that I stuck with it. I can't wait to apply what I learned.
