In this course, we explore the concepts of racism, intersectionality, and “Emotional Tax” that research shows underrepresented racial and ethnic groups can and often do experience on a daily basis both in and out of work. Emotional Tax—the combined effect of being on guard to protect against bias; feeling different at work because of gender, race, and/or ethnicity; and the associated effects on health, well-being, and ability to thrive at work—is often acutely painful. Develop the inclusive leadership skills, foundational insights, points of self-reflection, and action plan to take the first steps to reduce the negative impact of exclusion and unfair treatment in the workplace and beyond. * * ~~~~
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
