Rev Up Your Summer of D&I with Inclusive Leadership Training!

If you were interested but did not have a chance to participate in the wildly popular CatalystX inclusive leadership course on edX, here’s your chance! Starting July 7, 2015 we will rerun “Inclusive Leadership Training: Becoming a Successful Leader,” which is our inaugural exploratory course about what it takes to become an inclusive leader. Our first instance of this course generated enrollment from more than 40,000 learners from over 200 countries! The rerun means the ever-popular and informative discussion boards and Facebook group will be open and active.

Additional Course Details are as follows:

♦ Course Start/Duration: July 7 / 4 weeks

♦ Effort: 1.5-2 hours per week

♦ Cost: Free; Verified Certificate $50

What separates a successful leader from a mediocre one? In Catalyst's edX course, Inclusive Leadership Training: Becoming a Successful Leader, you will learn what successful 21st-century leaders look like and how you can adopt their inclusive leadership style. Using research and best practices, as well as stories from great leaders and everyday people, you will practice empowerment, accountability, courage, and humility—key leadership skills linked to inclusive, successful teams. Throughout the course, you will meet people like yourself, who want to be the best leaders they possibly can by incorporating inclusive leadership into their everyday lives. With short quizzes and compelling case studies, you will refine your skills each week. Most importantly, you will apply your new leadership skills through exciting real-life exercises. At the end of the course, you will create a Personal Leadership Plan that will help you continue to develop your skills, knowledge, and awareness in your quest to become a successful leader.

Good afternoon,

I attempted to register for this leadership training, however during the sign-up process I got a message that an email could not be sent to me so I could complete signing up. Any suggestions as to how I can get signed up?

Thank you,

April T.

Hi April. If you're still having this problem, contact edX directly. Sign up is usually pretty easy, so I'm not sure what's going on! Email them at: [email protected].

Is this an on-demand course, or is it instructor led?

Can we schedule a session for our employee population? Can it be delivered virtually?

Hi Kristin. The CatalystX course is entirely online. Anyone can sign up for it. For a large employee session, you may be interested in our blended learning experience "Leading With Inclusion," with our partner, Blessing White. Read more info here:

I will send you a separate email to connect you with the right person.
