Student Testimonials

As a professional development manager for a national healthcare company, the information I received through the Cultural Diversity in Profession Practice Extension Certificate was invaluable, as it afforded me a broad-based understanding of diversity and inclusion principles and practices. I was able to immediately apply cultural diversity knowledge for use in training within the company. I also received enough resources for future use in my professional practice. The certificate affected me not only on a professional level but enhanced my personal life through its reflective practices. I am sure that this course would be beneficial to anybody working within culturally diverse workplaces and communities.

— Heather Stanley, MASc, BSc - Manager, Professional Development

 

I think now more than ever Canada is realizing the importance of cultural diversity training and awareness. The CDPP Extension Certificate is a thought-provoking program that gives you the opportunity to expand your knowledge of cultural diversity in various contexts. It is relevant every day for our lives, and because of this, it has added great value to my professional background.

— Sarah Falconer - Cultural Consultant
