Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Certificate Program

CoreNet Global is committed to doing all we can, using our collective power, to eliminate discrimination and promote equality in the workplace. Discrimination in any form – including due to race, skin color, national origin, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, religion, or age – must be erased in the places we live and work.

CoreNet Global serves professionals from 50 countries around the world and recognizes the important role we can and should play in bringing a diverse and inclusive focus to all endeavors. We view this as a business imperative.

We believe in building an open community both within our association and within the many corporations in which our members are employed. We will do our part to identify conscious and unconscious bias and inequality – and work to define a role the built environment can play in fostering a diverse and inclusive culture.

To this end, we are pleased to offer the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Certificate program, sponsored by:

    In understanding where we are today, it is critical that we also examine the historical systems and structures that paved the way. While dismantling racism across our systems and institutions may seem daunting, we can all play a unique and critical role in addressing these inequities.

    We know from research and science that leaders have the ability to solve for bias but they are still failing at creating inclusive cultures. Why is this? Simply put, bias is what happens in our brains while feelings of inclusion or exclusion are what happens in other people’s brains. Spending time on diversity training may not be the solution to creating a more inclusive culture. Come join Regan Donoghue, Workforce Strategist, this session that helps to separate the two and work towards achieving both goals: mitigating unconscious bias and promoting inclusive cultures.
