No, the Mindful Facilitation Certificate is not a license. There is no licensing program anywhere in the United States for diversity training specialists and/or mindful facilitation.
What can a Mindful Facilitation Certificate do for me?
Although there are many responses to this question, the first is on the level of personal understanding and skill development. Many students pursue the Mindful Facilitation Certificate because of the need to develop communication and diversity facilitation skills in their personal and professional lives. Others pursue the Certificate because of a desire to change career paths, and they wish to become diversity trainers or consultants. In time, with skill-based training and practice opportunities in the field, students acquire sufficient training and experience to operate as practitioners in the field. A number of our trainees have used their Mindful Facilitation skills to assist them in their careers as Human Resource Professionals, Therapists, Consultants, Educators and/or Administrators.
Throughout the program, students will be presented with opportunities to practice facilitating workshops, film-showings, online discussions and classes. The Certificate Program is a great opportunity to get individualized attention, feedback and support from Master Diversity Trainers. The chance to network with professionals who are similarly invested in diversity and facilitation work is also a great benefit.
Now that I have earned my Mindful Facilitation Certificate, can I consider myself a StirFry Seminars & Consulting “Facilitator”?
The Mindful Facilitation Certificate qualifies as a credential from an internationally-known diversity and communications training company, StirFry Seminars & Consulting, founded by CEO and Master Diversity Trainer, Lee Mun Wah. The document serves as a formal acknowledgement from StirFry Seminars & Consulting that the student has gone through and completed a rigorous and thorough program of study in the Art of Mindful Facilitation. Although the Mindful Facilitation Certificate does not guarantee you to be able to represent yourself as a StirFry Seminars & Consulting trainer, we will certainly support any student on a path to be considered to apply for such a position.
After the successful completion of the Certificate requirements, any student wishing to embark upon this path (to become a StirFry trainer and/or a diversity trainer or consultant elsewhere) will be encouraged to register for the optional Mindful Facilitation Internship Training Program to gain practicum hours and experience. The Internship Training Program is a great opportunity to get continued individualized attention, feedback and support from Master Diversity Trainers, and further develop competence and confidence working in the field.
