What the client said

“Increased awareness and understanding of race and racial issues and how it impacts people differently. Closer relationships with those on the course as some people allowed themselves to be vulnerable by sharing their experiences. I feel I became a better person in taking time to learn, understand and grow in relation to this subject.”

“Clearer understanding of my own relationship with race and my inherent biases, more comfortable to have challenging conversations and confront unacceptable behaviour when I see it.”
