The PGA of America offered its employees "Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Access Essentials" training that was created by UNT's Division of Digital Strategy and Innovation and UNT's Division of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access.

Through this professional development, which is available to anyone via Coursera, PGA of America employees and professionals will have an opportunity to learn skills to create and support intentionally inclusive environments.

"We are thrilled that the PGA of America selected UNT to provide their community with online diversity, equity and inclusion training and thought leadership," says Adam Fein, UNT's vice president for digital strategy and innovation and chief digital officer. "As a minority-majority, Tier One research institution, we are uniquely positioned to partner and collaborate with the PGA on these essential topics."

The four-module course includes activities, various forms of media and other interactive resources to help learners actively engage with the material and guide them through their own reflection on DEI topics.

"This partnership offers a great opportunity to provide learners across the globe with the skills needed to create more intentionally inclusive, diverse, equitable and accessible environments. UNT is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all, and this new class is just one example of our efforts to promote diversity and equity on a larger scale," says Joanne Woodard, UNT's vice president for inclusion, diversity, equity and access.
