Equify is a simple yet remarkably powerful audio course (with closed captioning available) on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and how it affects work culture.
What Is Equify?
Equify's on-demand audio course (with closed captioning available) uses simple and clear examples to cover topics across generations, cultural and gender identity, accessibility and ableism, sustainability, and more. The goal is to unite, mobilize and create changemakers in your organization.
an innovative on-demand training solution
Equify includes two separate courses, each structured like a podcast. Some topics are listed below and a full syllabus for each can be found here.
The goal of Equify is to build a shared foundation of diversity and inclusion knowledge, understanding, and best practices across your leaders and teams.
Originally, Equify was used by Allies in Recruiting to establish a foundation of shared DEIC knowledge across the group - a collective of recruiters and HR professionals including members from agencies, brands, independent consultants and staffing agencies. However, we know that true, long-term change requires education for all members of an organization.
Who Is Equify For?
Equify is designed for everyone – senior executives, hiring managers, talent and HR teams, and any employee who participates in hiring or wants to create a more inclusive culture in their workplace. It’s the only certification designed to bridge the knowledge gap between how organizations hire talent and how great diverse talent can be supported, included, and retained.
Equify is for everyone in the workplace because every employee plays a role in creating an inclusive and equitable organization.
"The first time I heard about Equify was in 2020 when the world was saddened and panicking after the tragedy of George Floyd. As a recruiting professional in a leading advertising agency at that time, the pressure of becoming an expert in the inclusive hiring and recruitment process was high. While I had been a champion for inclusive hiring my entire recruitment career, Equify boosted my understanding of DEIC (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Culture) and the ways to navigate stakeholders. I see so many benefits for anyone listening to it. Unlike the experience of acquiring other certificates, Equify breaks the content down into short sessions with a theme and structure like a podcast, making it easy to listen to at our own pace. Not only is it energizing and thought-provoking, but it also provides practical strategies for every person in the workforce."

"In the last few years, we’ve seen so many impactful but disconnected ED&I efforts in our industry. I see Equify as a cornerstone and the foundation of ED&I knowledge that pushes our industry to achieve sustainable, collective, and meaningful change.
Among many other things, the audience will learn the importance of questioning every action and step they take and identifying the inherently embedded biases and prejudices from hiring through talent retention.
Business Leaders, C-level Executives, Recruiters, Hiring Managers, and interviewers will get the chance to learn more about the importance of diversifying their workplaces for stronger cultures, products, services, and communities. They will also get some actionable tips and steps and will learn to focus on sustainable, ongoing, and continuous action instead of elevated metrics."

"If you are looking for an on-demand training module that can scale across disciplines and/or an organization, I’d highly recommend Equify. Not only a resource for HR/People/TA teams, this is also a great training for hiring managers and leaders who are responsible for retaining talent."
