Morial Convention Center Offers Free Online Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Certificate Program

NEW ORLEANS — The Talent Development Team within the People Services Department at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center wants to be a resource for our local hospitality industry to grow professionally and sharpen their talents.

In the coming months, the convention center will offer in-person, instructor-led training as well as online offerings. Until that time, the convention center will act as a resource to connect the hospitality community to free or low-cost training offerings. Currently, we have discovered a fantastic opportunity offered by the University of South Florida, and we couldn’t wait to share it with our local colleagues:

The USF Muma College of Business is offering a FREE online certificate program on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Workplace.

The goal of the certificate program is to help companies become more inclusive by imparting knowledge and developing tools to perform organizational self-assessment and plans for inclusive change.

The seven-week course will begin on March 24 with a new two-hour module every Wednesday until May 19.

Completion and receiving a passing grade will result in being granted the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Workplace Certificate, issued by the Muma College of Business. The digital version of this certification will be sent to the participant by email. This will also include a sharable digital badge that can be easily showcased on LinkedIn profiles.

Schedule Format: 100% Online
Time: Live sessions will be held 4 to 6 p.m. CST. (Sessions will also be recorded so users may view at any time.)
Pre-requisite Requirements: None
Fee: Free
Books & Materials Requirements: None

The program is not sponsored by the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center; we are simply passing along some information that we hope you’ll find valuable. Please stay tuned for more training and learning opportunities.
