I may be able to dig them up but they’d be from 2016. I created an in-depth packet for all my recommenders that included the schools I wanted to attend and why, performance evaluations, why I was seeking my MBA, my resume and a history of my voluntarism. This was immensely helpful as they wrote my recommendations.

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.

Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
