The Power of Difference Certification (PDC)

 

The Why:

 

Most of us have good intentions across our differences. And our intentions don’t always match our impact.  Others of us aren't sure how to have pride without prejudice.  Still others can feel stuck and confused by our wish not to offend. To create meaningful change in the world we must begin with ourselves. This certification program is designed to move beyond blame, guilt, and shame, to unleash your unique and noble brilliance, passion, and courage for a life, organization, community and world where no one stands alone.

 

 

The What:

 

The Power of Difference Certification program (PDC) is a 45 hour, 15-module (~3 hours per module), professional development that can be taken online or in-person.  It can be adapted for any field: faculty/staff in higher education, K12, law enforcement, non-profits, government, human services, business, or healthcare.

 

 

The PDC can be faee-to-face, online exclusively, or blending of both according to your needs.  

 

The program utilizes pre and post  measurement using the PDS (Power of Difference Survey) and one-on-one results consultation.  The program uses commercially prepared videos (like "Race the Power of an Illusion," "Tough Guise," etc.) as well as content developed by The Sum.  Small group meetings and live chats between partners in virtual "rooms" are used for processing learnings, feelings, and ideas. The online program can be run on Blackboard or our system (Moodle).
