Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Overview

In this course, students will examine diversity and inclusion in the workplace through the lens of an employer and employee, what it means for team leaders and managers, including conflict management, communication skills, and team building.

Contemporary issues related to race, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, religion, ability, age, nationality and ethnicity will also be explored in this course. This course explores what equality, diversity, and inclusion look like inside and outside of the office, and how we can transform today's world for a better tomorrow.

For BC Realtors, attending this course can be counted towards Self-Directed PDP Hours.

Live Online Students

Ashton College offers education for all students with a unique online learning approach. A synchronous learning component provides real time interaction and immediate feedback. We use real time interactive sessions, breakout rooms, and screen-sharing. An asynchronous learning component allows students to work at their own pace. Our asynchronous learning materials include recorded real time lectures, online readings, and discussion forums. We encourage students, if possible, to use both components so as to enjoy interactivity and community of real-time learning as well as studying at their own pace. This approach ensures students have support and resources to achieve their educational goals.

For synchronous sessions, students need to have a fully functional computer system with a webcam, speakers and microphone or headset and headphones, along with a reliable high-speed internet connection. Though the classes can be accessed using smartphones and tablets, we recommend using a laptop or desktop computer for a better learning experience.

This program/course does not require approval by the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills. As such, PTIB did not review the program/course.
