Key Learning Benefits and Curriculum Topic Areas

The curriculum of the Inclusive Leaders Academy (ILA) is comprised of carefully curated content that cultivates Social Intelligence, Self-Awareness, and Courage. These skill sets have been proven to assist in better decision making, as well as enhancing team and organizational climate.

Although the 13-week experience is self-guided, you must complete the content for these three curriculum topic areas between February and May to receive your Culture Champion certificate of completion.

Social Intelligence
