An ally is someone who educates themselves about issues around inclusiveness, strives to find common ground with others and actively supports individuals from different groups. Allies are an important component of a successful diversity & inclusion (D&I) initiative and can help organizations ensure the effectiveness of their programs. They act when discrimination occurs, and they support, advocate for, and champion others who need and can benefit from such support. As a member of your organization, you have the ability to become an ally and help shape the actions and culture around you—thus fostering an environment that is respectful, diverse, inclusive, free of bias, and helps everyone have a secure sense of belonging.
How You Will Benefit:
Who Should Attend:
Team leaders, managers, leaders and all professionals who wish to gain tools and strategies they can leverage to become a better ally—and help support and promote a trusting, inclusive culture in their organization.

How do you determine what makes a qualified and competent manager? Without a reliable benchmark that can be applied across industries, that determination must remain highly subjective—and this can cost organizations in terms of costly hiring decisions, excessive turnover, poor strategy execution and a wide range of other problems. It can also impede managers in their own career advancement.
This webcast will discuss the business case for a management certification standard, as well as AMA’s new program to help managers qualify to be a Certified Professional in Management™.
What You Will Cover
Business professionals interested in learning more about management certification. Individual managers can learn more about how to advance their careers with certification and what it takes to get certified. Supervisors of managers, division and department heads can learn more about the benefits to the organization by having certified managers.
