Professional designation

Diversity and inclusion practitioners get your professional designation

Registration for the CCIP™ designation is now closed, but will reopen in Spring 2018.

As a diversity and inclusion (D&I) professional, you know your skills are vital to the future of Canadian organizations. Yet, how can you prove to your clients or employers that you have what it takes to advance the D&I agenda and promote real change?

Get certified and become a Canadian Certified Inclusion Professional (CCIP™).

Watch the video to learn more about the CCIPTM designation:

CCDI developed the CCIP™ certification in collaboration with a national advisory committee and more than two hundred D&I practitioners across Canada. This group set the standards that define the diversity and inclusion profession in our country. So, there is now a rigorous certification process to assess practitioners’ experience, skills and knowledge.

If you are looking for formal recognition of your expertise, become a CCIP™ and boost your career:

  • Develop a competitive edge in a tough job market
  • Show employers and clients the breadth and depth of your experience
  • Raise the standards and national profile of the D&I profession

“Holding a professional designation will allow D&I professionals to distinguish themselves from the crowd. As an employer, I see the CCIP certification as an assurance that a person has what it takes to be effective as a D&I professional. Certification will be a key differentiator and important qualification for D&I professionals in Canada.”

Kate Broer, Partner and Canada Region Co-Chair of Diversity and Inclusion at Dentons

“Creating a designation gives legitimacy to the job [of Diversity and Inclusion Professional]. We cannot underestimate legitimacy. It provides a strong signal to the organizations hiring these people that they are qualified and passionate about this profession.”
