The Sarah Jane Academy™ Advantage
Sarah Jane Academy™ , powered by Johnson Squared Consulting, was designed to fill two voids that many Diversity Equity & Inclusion advocates and professionals know well: (1) the need for tactics - not theory and (2) a highly-regarded DEI certificate without cost barriers.
"Johnson Squared Consulting is recognized by SHRM to offer Professional Development Credits (PDCs) for SHRM-CP® or SHRM-SCP®."
Week 1: DEI Evolution & Top Challenges
We'll explore the evolution of the DEI industry. Then, from the collected narratives of DEI practitioners across a variety of industries, we'll discuss the top DEI challenges of today.
Week 2: Your Role as a DEI Practitioner
We'll do a deep dive into each element of your role as a DEI practitioner, which is to diagnose, protect, strategize, advise and measure. We'll also discuss the "must have" advocates every DEI practitioner needs on their team.
Week 3: Getting to Work
This module will sharpen your awareness to common threats to DEI and equip you with the tools that can help. We'll tackle career trauma; protecting against unconscious bias and micro-aggressions; gaining leadership support; defining and neutralizing the meritocracy fallacy; and managing through change pain.
Week 4: DEI in Practice
We'll review a real DEI scenario together. Then, to culminate the program, you'll create a responsive DEI action plan that reflects your learning.
This program is flexibly designed to balance convenience with the requirements of a high-caliber certificate program.
