Training Overview
Recently, we have seen an increase in diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives in the workplace to address public health inequities. The slogan “Nothing for us, without us” has encouraged inclusivity and representation of disparate end-users in the planning and implementation of interventions that address Social Determinants of Health. However, to effectively address disparities, we must reach beyond roles, and collaborate to address multi-sectoral problems that foster inequalities.

The course contains two modules: a content module and a resources and evaluation module. After accessing both modules, learners will earn a certificate of completion. When the certificate is available, learners will see a Certificate button on their dashboard.

This recording is approximately 90 minutes. There are no prerequisites. Participants will need a broadband internet connection (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are preferred browsers) and computer speakers. For technical support, please contact
