An interview with Fielding alum Bill White, EdD

What is the goal of the DEI&A Ambassador Certificate?

There are several goals, but the top priority is to produce a cadre of competent professionals in diversity, equity, and inclusion. The DEI&A Ambassador Certificate program is the first step: graduates will become competent in the areas of implicit bias, micro-aggression, effective listening, communication, and conflict resolution.

Another critical priority is to help organizations embrace diversity and inclusion practices, and they can achieve it by offering opportunities to their staff to become DEI&A Ambassadors.

What have you learned since you joined the National Diversity Collaborative, Inc.? 

Education is a significant part of achieving diversity, equity, and inclusion in our society. The National Diversity Collaborative, Inc. offers some of these educational opportunities.

As we celebrate Black History Month, my call to action is an invitation to all to pursue educational opportunities. Connect with your community. Learn from your peers. Join the DEI movement to help define a future where everyone feels they belong.
