GREEN BELT

The Six Sigma Racial Equity Institute™ (SSREI) is a Six Sigma Leadership and Training program designed to upskill Black women and Black Latina in the Indianapolis community with strategies and tools for critical thinking and complex problem-solving.  Each program cohort includes training and certification provided by a local university.

The SSREI program includes a combination of instructional and project time. The instructional part of the initiative includes five full days of training, followed by five months for the completion of a community-based project focused on equity gaps.  The value of Six Sigma Training is normally $5000, but thanks to our partner sponsorships, the tuition will be significantly reduced.

SSREI starts a new cohort each year, and we use an application process to select the final candidates for up to eighteen highly sought-after seats.
