This course had the main points to create a Diversity and Inclusion Strategy. Need to know information that was well presented. I would definitely recommend anyone who is about to embark on developing a D&I strategy for their organization to take this brief course.

Overall, I thought this was informative and helped cover the basics of D&I. I learned about a few things that I didn't realize were a part of D&I, and thought Catherine's presentation was easy to follow/understand.

I liked the concrete examples and steps given by the instructor, such as creating an audit plan and a strategic plan and managing performance as it pertains to diversity.

Great course, I was sure I would get anything from this but this will allow me to go back and make changes in a work place that is no inclusive at all
