“The LREDI is a 30-hour-long certification program targeted towards C-Level executives, HR professionals, and organization workers. The curricular of the various courses all seek to equip participants with the strategies, practices, and resources needed to promote equal opportunities for all genders and races within the workplace and greater community. At the core of the program is the goal to enable equity for women in leadership, establish resources for financial support, and encourage people of all backgrounds to seek greater opportunities in workplaces. Adams and her organization, the Aisha Adams Media Group, also began hosting the “Folding Chair” series last week, where panelists of diverse backgrounds have opportunities to speak on their experiences applying for work and the challenges they face as minorities within their industries.”
