“The session was pretty insightful. It's amazing how much work and thought goes into DEI practices.

I've learned today that this is an ongoing process that will be continually evolving. I think [the instructor] is an amazing facilitator and I love how she always had valuable insights and examples to share from personal experiences. It was very interactive and she kept it "fresh" all the way. I loved it!”

“The course content was exactly what I was hoping to learn.

[The instructor] did a really good job of teaching concepts, providing examples, and prompting discussion. Her approach was successful in generating discussion and getting the participants to share their own lived experiences and perspectives. The combination of great content, style, and the participants' willingness to share made for a great course!”

Your team is awesome and the insights and tool/materials you shared today and yesterday is more than I expected of this course and will be instrumental in my journey of making a workplace inclusive and diverse.”
