“I have never attended D&I training before and didn’t know what to expect. This exceeded my expectations. It wasn’t boring. It was timely and relevant. D&I can be a sensitive topic with some and I felt like the approach here brought people along with being judgmental or condemning anyone.”
Training Participant, ICBA
“Our customer service manager of 21 years stated that this training was the best and the most relevant class she attended in her career.”
