Diversity & 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 launch our new Diversity & Inclusion Certificate program.

What to Expect

The certificate program covers a broad range of diversity and inclusion topics through a series of seven webinar recordings. To earn the certificate, participants must complete six of the seven webinars. The sessions are also available a la carte. Additional webinars will be added to the Diversity and Inclusion library over time and will also count toward earning the six-session certificate. Once you have completed 6 of the 7 courses, you will be sent a "verification of completion" form.


The full program with access to all 7 sessions is available for a bundled price: $199 for members; $449 for non-members. These sessions are also available a la carte: 3 sessions are offered at no charge*, 4 sessions (indicated with a $) are available for $59 each for members; $129 each for non-members. To register multiple people (5 or more) from your company, please download and complete this form and return to registration@corenetglobal.org
