Following - you’ll always wonder what if IMO about either

I would agree, but without experiencing it, hard to know. I would also venture to guess that folks that were in same boat as me and went the other way likely don’t really think about it. They JD different priorities and goals than I did, so their decision was a sound one. I don’t really think about turning down the $, but I may in the future when the loan payments start becoming due.

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
