Sign up for the next class in the Foundations of Equity certificate program

The City Coordinator’s Equity and Inclusion team is now hosting the next series of the Foundations of Equity certificate program. The fourth class, “What is Marginalization? – Don’t Push Me ‘Cause I’m Close To the Edge,” will be held at 1 p.m. Sept. 12 in the Doty Board Room at the Minneapolis Central Library.

Learn why some people are included and others excluded from important workplace conversations and decisions, and why opinions of some people are seen as mattering more than those of others. Marginalization occurs when certain people or groups of people are pushed to the edge and considered of lesser importance. The needs and desires of the people within these groups are ignored. Marginalization of those within minority subgroups tends to negatively impact recruitment, retention and promotion of those within these groups.

Sign up via COMET to take the class in person or participate online:

  1. Log in to COMET-HR.
  2. Click “Learning and Development.”
  3. Enter keywords from the name of the class in the search (e.g., “marginalization”).

The Foundations of Equity certificate program consists of five classes to foster workplace equity and inclusion. Get tools and strategies to help City workplaces value, respect and leverage diversity more. Email [email protected] with questions.
