Enabling high-performing organizations and contributing to building more diverse and inclusive workplaces

Humanis Your HR Partner, the leading Human Resources company providing a wide range of services including Learning and Development Programs and Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, and ACTA-Technoblastos Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, a premier Human Resources Certification organization and member of the TÜV AUSTRIA Group, announced their strategic partnership to introduce the innovative certification scheme for Inclusive Leadership. This new, powerful certification scheme is designed for individuals, managers, and teams, to assess their skills in implementing practices that promote diversity and inclusion.

This pioneering certification scheme “Inclusive Leadership” targets all individual contributors and managers, empowering them with the requisite skills to champion diversity and foster inclusivity within their organizations. The certification scheme, which will be conducted by Humanis and ACTA respectively, consists of four modules, designed to equip participants with the knowledge and tools to recognize, value, and integrate the diversity of human resources into the heart of their business strategy. Through interactive exercises, exchange of experiences, group discussions, and development of strategic practices, participants become successful ambassadors of an inclusive and equal organizational culture.


Key areas of focus within the training certification include:


  • Strategies to identify, address, and prevent discrimination and patterns of exclusion in the workplace
  • Daily practices to promote diversity and inclusion
  • Leadership skills to develop a work environment that supports equality and inclusion
  • Implementing inclusive practices to foster a culture of equality and inclusion


Participants have the flexibility to select specific modules aligned with their organizational objectives, with each successful completion culminating in the “Inclusive Leadership” certification.

The collaboration between Humanis and ACTA marks a new era of inclusive leadership, promoting positive organizational change, and fostering environments where every individual can embrace a growth mindset and thrive.


Mary Bitouni, representing Humanis, expressed her enthusiasm, stating:

“At Humanis, we’ve always embraced the challenge of effecting meaningful change within organizations, ensuring a tangible ROI for our clients and participants alike. In today’s landscape, inclusive leadership isn’t just a strategic imperative; it’s the cornerstone of organizational success. This certification scheme underscores our commitment to fostering healthy, vibrant work environments that elevate individuals, society, and businesses alike.”


The Director of Planning and Development of ACTA SA, Thanasis Gkegas said in this regard:

“The ecosystem of TÜV AUSTRIA Hellas companies also operates as a pioneer in the certification of professional skills, spearheaded by ACTA AE, an offshoot of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, offering organizations and businesses the opportunity to document, beyond any doubt, the corporate approach to Sustainability (ESG Approach) in the pillar of Society and especially in the dimension of inclusion and diversity. The specific private certification scheme, in addition to guaranteeing reliability, also functions as a tool for strengthening corporate added value and building a culture that can provide the necessary competitive advantage.”
