Cornell Certified Diversity Professional/


Advanced Practitioner (CCDP/AP)

Diversity Management
Several years ago, Cornell ILR developed the nation’s first Certified Diversity Professional
(CCDP) Program. In response to the growing complexity and depth of the field, Cornell
is now offering a new certification: the Cornell Certified Diversity Professional/
Advanced Practitioner, or CCDP/AP. This program is intended for diversity
professionals with a minimum of three years substantive experience in the diversity field
or the equivalent, who wish to hone their skills and increase their depth of knowledge.
This certification will provide experienced professionals with additional knowledge,
skills and strategies to promote individual professional growth and organizational
success.

R e q u i re m e n t s
To become a CCDP/AP, applicants must have a minimum of three years’ experience as

| Certificate and Certification


a diversity professional, and must successfully complete the Diversity Management
Certificate program (see p. 2). They must then complete the CCDP/AP application
form, which may be found at www.ilr.cornell.edu/mgmtprog/certificates/
dm/CDP.html. Individuals already holding the CCDP certification who wish to
transition to the CCDP/AP may do so by completing the requirements listed on our
website at http://www.ilr.cornell. edu/mgmtprog/certificates/dm/CDP.html.
CCDP/AP applicants must then complete the Advanced Diversity Strategies class, as
well as one additional 200 or 300 level class from the diversity curriculum. Applicants
must then successfully complete a diversity-related project. The project must be on a
current issue in diversity and related to your diversity work in your organization or in
your private practice. The project must be turned in before an individual can be
certified. Applicants must also pass an exam, which will consist of both multiple choice
and essay questions.

Faculty
In addition to Cornell ILR extension faculty, workshop instructors include executives,
practitioners, consultants, and attorneys who bring academic expertise and real-
world experience into the classroom. ILR’s fostering of experts on current issues,
along with participant evaluations and feedback ensure that you receive the best
instruction in the field.

Examples of the power of diversity are around us all the time. They make a compelling
case for using diversity management to get better results, solve problems, make better
decisions, and create innovative services. Yet, we often miss these compelling signs.
Why? We don’t know what to look for.
Diversity Management

The field of diversity has been so consumed with basic diversity issues (representation,
image, recruiting, retention) that many people have overlooked the power of “true
diversity” to create value and results. This course provides a glimpse into the
possibilities of diversity management when it is approached as a strategy and viewed
through the lens of “capacity to create value.” It explores:
• Why “management” is essential to getting value from diversity
• How to determine “true diversity” based on perspectives, heuristics,
interpretations, and predictive models
• How to use diversity as a trigger for innovation
• Examples of how diversity produces performance, productivity, creativity, quality
decisions, and commercial value

K e y To p i c s
• The everyday possibilities of diversity management
• Knowing what to look for
• The ugly side of diversity without management
• Review of “We Don’t Know What We Think”
• Review of The Difference, and other book excerpts
• Managing diversity at the individual, group, interpersonal, and organizational
levels
• Overview of a diversity management strategy
• The power of Conversations That Count™
• What every manager, leader, and employee needs to know

Executive Coaching for


Extraordinary Results
EXECUTIVE COACHING is designed to help high-level executives deal
with issues related to EEO and diversity. Coaching is a powerful one-on-one
relationship that engages a client in a deep and honest exploration of his
or her goals and the actions required to accomplish them. Coaching
supports challenges and holds the client accountable to make consistent
(often dramatic) progress toward the realization of his or her most important
aspirations. People use the coaching relationship to focus on both personal
as well as business goals.
Cornell ILR Extension faculty have the expertise to make complex subjects
such as EEO and diversity accessible. We give organizations the understanding
and tools they need to abide by the law and develop inclusive practices and
policies that benefit the workplace. Executives will explore their behavior in
these areas and its potentially profound effect, positive or negative, on the
business.
