Diversity Certificate Program 2.0 (DCP 2.0) is designed to be a follow-up for those who have completed the Adelphi University Diversity Certificate Program.

The focus of DCP 2.0 is to equip participants across different levels of the university to respond when they notice discrimination, harassment, bullying, and other forms of aggression on campus, and engage in behaviors that promote a climate that is open to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Required Workshops

Participants will attend (5) online workshops developed in collaboration with community partners that promote equity around issues such as race, creed, color, national origin, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, religion, marital and veteran status.

In this workshop, you will be provided with a context, framework, and language for understanding the realities of racism and how individuals can work to dismantle racism in their personal and professional lives and in their organizations. The workshop employs concepts around working with participants on an individualized plan of action to increase racial equity in their organization.

This workshop is facilitated by ERASE Racism. ERASE Racism is a regional organization that leads public policy advocacy campaigns and related initiatives to promote racial equity in areas such as housing, public school education, and community development.

Herstory will present their “using memoir as a tool for action.” Herstory and participants will share their goals for using personal stories to create a climate of equity and inclusion on campus, and to work together to counter discrimination, harassment, bullying, segregation, isolation, and isolation into separate silos on campus.

Herstory Writer’s Network brings unheard voices, both near and far, into the public arena; to transform lived experiences into written memoirs powerful enough to change hearts, minds, and policy.

In this workshop, the facilitator will present a shared and agreed-upon baseline of knowledge regarding LGBTQIA+ communities, including understanding the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity and defining important LGBTQIA+ terms.  The facilitator will discuss developing cultural humility to understand our own privileges and building empathy for what it is like to be LGBTQIA+. This will include self-assessments to identify our internal biases and microaggressions in order to move from good intentions to effective allyship.

This workshop is facilitated by the LGBT Network, an association of non-profit organizations working to serve the LGBTQIA+ community of Long Island and Queens.
