Human Rights Certificate Program

Become Certified in Human Rights

Business leaders in support of diversity tend to be both philosophical (“This is the right thing to do”) and practical (“We want to attract and retain the best people”). As a result, most businesses, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and civic groups tend to have statements of value that stress the importance of respecting human dignity and reaching out to all segments of society.

Yet, those value statements mean little unless the philosophy is backed by practical commitment. And that commitment must be more than an abstraction. It must be real, and it must be perceived to be real.

The Wassmuth Center’s Human Rights Certification Program is based in that reality. It provides an individual a deep understanding of the core values of diversity, inclusion, ethics, respect, and civility. To reflect on how those values impact work and personal life and to decide what action can be taken, one person at a time, to bring those values to the workplace or the community. As a final category, participants consider the role of the “Upstander,” the person who embodies those values every day.

Why is Certification Important?

For the individual, certification is a formal recognition of a specific skill set that focuses on human rights and human dignity. For a business or organization, having employees or members who have earned certification proves that value statements are backed by knowledgeable, thoughtful, and meaningful commitments. 

Each successful certification is a reminder that people of good intent and goodwill – people like you – are creating a new reputation for their department, their company, and their community as a place where human rights and human dignity are at the center of daily living.
