What Our Learners Say About Us
"I learned a great deal from the Foundations in IDEA Certificate program. The time commitment is ideal for working professionals. And the sessions were engaging and interactive. Every individual should take this course."
University of Windsor
"I thoroughly enjoyed the Foundations in IDEA and D&I Influencer Certificate programs. The Facilitators were excellent at presenting the information, staying on time and engaging all the participants. Each course had a very diverse group of participants who were open-minded, enthusiastic, and willing to share their experiences. The information shared during the programs has broadened my perspective and helped me to understand the history, challenges, and importance of DEI. We are working to build and implement a DEI strategy at work and I have been able to use what I have learned to ask questions and help our steering committee to make important decisions."
Pickering Fire Department
"I received a very comprehensive and thorough view of the current D&I situation in Canada. The sessions were very informative and eye-opening and provided different perspectives both from lived experience and also from other professionals from across the country. I would definitely recommend the course to others."
Autism Speaks Canada
"I took the Foundations In IDEA Certificate Program and I found the information very useful, and it definitely applied to my role and the work I do every day. The presenters were very professional and a delight to deal with. I appreciated the breakout room activities, as they gave me a chance to work with a variety of people. What I valued most was that the training helped me to think "outside the box", and look at things through a slightly different lens. I would take training from CCDI Consulting again."
"Over the past year, I have participated in a number of learning programs through CCDI, including the Foundations in IDEA Certificate program, and the Anti-racism Education Certificate program. I have found the quality of the programs to be top-notch and the facilitators to be very knowledgeable. My own knowledge has increased substantially and I look forward to participating in more CCDI Consulting programs in the future."
