“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
