Diversity Certification

Invest in Your Future! Learn. Collaborate. Deliver.


Nikeya Diversity Consulting is an official licensee of the Institute for Diversity Certification (IDC) and it’s CDP® and CDE® credentials which are the gold standard in the ED&I profession, globally. Certification provides third-party verification that an ED&I Champion is intentional, strategic and proactive! Today, anyone can toot their own horn and claim to be an ED&I expert or an effective global manager. However, a growing number of organizations want proof of inclusive excellence before they waste millions on ED&I programming or face public humiliation for discrimination lawsuits, harassment or other inequities.

Certification provides the proof you need, plus it creates new opportunities for collaboration and ideation. We recognize the elite leaders who achieve certification because they put in the work to demonstrate inclusive excellence and professional commitment. Both the CDP® and CDE® provide assurances to the public, employers, and colleagues that the certification holder has the knowledge, skill and ability to thrive in the next generation of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion work.
