Becker, a global leader in accounting exam prep and professional education and a part of Adtalem Global Education, today announced its new Cultivating a Diverse and Inclusive Workplace Foundational Certificate. The five-course, 12-credit continuing professional education (CPE) program is designed to introduce the benefits of integrating true diversity, equity, belonging and inclusion (DEBI) into the workplace.
"Developing a diverse and inclusive work environment in which all people can thrive requires an investment in knowledge and a shared and intentional commitment within an organization," said Lisa Wardell, CEO of Adtalem Global Education, a leading workforce solutions provider and parent company of Becker. "Becker is investing in the future of accounting, and society at large, by prioritizing these issues and taking a proactive role in helping to bring more diversity in talent, ideas and culture to the workforce."
Participants of the certificate program will earn CPE credit with each course and a Becker certificate upon completion of all five. The courses are available in a self-paced, on-demand format and are viewable 24/7. For more information and to register for the certificate program, visit www.becker.com/diversity.
