The Inclusive Behaviors Inventory (IBI) is a great way to start off on a meaningful learning journey toward better inclusion practices. Developed by DEI experts, this tool provides five clear paths to grow inclusive behaviors based on self-assessment results. You’ll be instrumental in helping individuals and teams set off on their journey to turn their awareness of inclusion into action.

By becoming certified in the IBI, you will:

  • Establish credibility in the DEI field
  • Gain an accessible framework and foundational language for inclusion
  • Secure a competitive edge
  • Become equipped with all resources necessary to facilitate meaningful sessions
  • Receive early insights about product updates
  • Join a global community of DEI and inclusion practitioners
  • Earn 8 Professional Development Credits (PDCs) toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification
  • Get credit for three (3) seats to administer the IBI with your clients!
  • Gain a better understanding of the IBI survey and related research

I've been impressed with the Inclusive Behaviors Inventory for several years: its ease of use, specificity of behaviors, and focus on action planning.

After attending the IBI Certification, I am much better prepared to use the tool with both my individual and team coaching clients. The certification provided an in-depth walk-through of the inventory's five dimensions, and an interactive opportunity to ask questions and learn from other experienced facilitators and coaches. The facilitator, materials, and learning activities were excellent.  Well worth the time and money!
