“My director just called me and said whatever discussions you and Stefanie had made this training focused, interesting, fun, and valuable – she’s already getting additional feedback on the team (they love the interactivity). She already wants me to work with you and Chris on something else. And she’s not an easy push….so thank you, thank you!”

“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
