Our Impact

What our program participants think about what we do . . .

  • "Great job! I'm glad it was more of a discussion than a workshop. The program exceeded my expectations and that the workshop addressed issues of diversity which are more than race, gender and religion. It challenged notions of what was and wasn't diversity."

  • "Great presenter and presentation! Bring him back again! John Harris is an excellent speaker who strives to reach out to the audience with humor, thought-provoking information and a desire for clear understanding on delicate issues. He was very good at getting the audience to open up and speak."

  • "The best workshop ever! What a great presenter. I'm guessing Mr. Harris could give a workshop on paperclips and keep our attention! Great speaker and very informational.  Let's have him back again!"

  • "Excellent! The most involvement I've seen in a workshop in a long time.  Great facilitator-good choice! The workshop left me with a sense of rejuvenation, optimism and energized me to enjoy and do an even better job."
