I learned so much, and I had a better understanding of tactics to diversify companies and reach out to different groups that are not currently represented.

I really loved this course.

The course is very well designed and presented. It is very impressive and helpful that all real life examples are discussed in the coursework and interviews.

In general the topic of diversity is very important and was reviewed from many different points, I was however missing a balance between issues for different groups of people.

The overall information in this course was very informative and in some aspects rewarding as refreshers as where the mindset is with some population standards. from a technical perspective I am not sure the system is working at 100%.

The course didn't meet my expectations. The external reading material is very outdated, sometimes taken from 10-15 years ago (DEI space has changed a lot in these years), and sometimes the links don't even work. The course is much less challenging than other DEI-related courses I took on Coursera and we don't learn anything about DEI except a few shallow ideas. For a university-produced course, it surprisingly lacks any scientific background, there are no mentions of research. I can't recommend this to anyone, I regret the time spent on this course. Two starts for the interviews that were the most valuable part.

There should have been more minorities doing the training.

After taking the insightful and informative course "The Power of Team Culture" (included in this specialization of Culture-Driven Team Building) while learning how it's important not to stereotype. This course does nothing but stereotype.
