Nationwide  Aisha Adams, founder and CEO of Aisha Adams Media Group, has partnered with Lenoir-Rhyne University in North Carolina to develop a 30-hour certificate program called The Lenoir-Rhyne Equity and Diversity Institute (LREDI). The program, developed over a year ago to prevent elevated racism in workplaces and communities, trains professionals on how to untangle their connections to bias, navigate socially complex workspaces, and actively pursue positive change.

Due to the recent death of George Floyd and the nearly two-month march of protestors taking a stand against systemic racism, one would think that this was a quick fix to teach business professionals how to eliminate racism in their workspaces.

Aisha, who is from Asheville, North Carolina, says that she developed the LREDI to provide participants with 16 hours of coursework focused on leadership with 12 additional hours of strategy geared toward company-specific solutions. The courses will be offered September 18-20, September 25-27, and October 16-18.

She comments, “LREDI is a corporate training for professionals who have an interest in cultivating spaces of diversity, equity, and inclusivity. It is also a learning opportunity for individuals who want to advance equity in their communities.”

Participants can take each course individually, or they can complete the entire program by receiving an official certificate following its successful completion, along with a company-changing skill set. LREDI participants can focus on business, education, or technology. The program has received support from The Racial Justice Coalition and Dogwood Health Trust.

"This is not a course on historical perspective. Our goal is to train people and provide them with deliverables that they can use to ensure equity and diversity are core principles in their professional and personal lives," says Michael Dempsey, Dean and Director at Lenoir-Rhyne University of Asheville.

Additional information about the Lenoir-Rhyne Equity and Diversity Institute, including the upcoming course schedule and registration details, is available at Courses are offered online and on weekends.
