In this Global Perspectives of DEI in the Workplace course offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado Boulder, you will engage in the process of examination, self-reflection, and action to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion (DEI) through a global lens. In the first course, you reflect on how your identity and background have shaped your thoughts, actions, and relationships with others while exploring the historical narratives and power structures that have shaped your environment. Next, you begin to build a toolkit that can be leveraged to create a transformational change through leadership in the workplace. Finally, you will work through what is next with what you have learned through this specialization and how to make lasting change for yourself and your interactions with others.

This specialization can be taken for academic credit as part of CU Boulder’s Master of Engineering in Engineering Management (ME-EM) degree offered on the Coursera platform. The ME-EM is designed to help engineers, scientists, and technical professionals move into leadership and management roles in the engineering and technical sectors. With performance-based admissions and no application process, the ME-EM is ideal for individuals with a broad range of undergraduate education and/or professional experience.

Applied Learning Project

Throughout the specialization, learners will engage in self-reflection to learn more about themselves and how their identity has shaped their thoughts, actions, and relationships with communities other than their own. Learners will then apply their knowledge to develop a DEI plan for their industry, including unbiased job descriptions and job interviews, the creation of affinity groups, and assessing DEI benchmarks.

What You Will Learn:

  • Analyze the historical narrative of institutions and institutional structures that have shaped inclusion and exclusion in your environment.
  • Critically examine and reflect on your identity, background, and experiences, and their impact on relationships between you and your environment.
