I would highly recommend it - so insightful and informative. There was information presented in this material that I had no understanding of before going through this process.
I thought the virtual platform was great, and had an amazing collection of resources. The videos were very powerful and are a great tool to get messages across.
The realizations I had about myself, my own situations and my biases was really eye-opening. You think you don't have much to say or a perspective on something at first, and then when you let yourself go just below the surface, it's crazy how much comes up.
I appreciated the deep dive into self-reflection and awakening to unconscious bias, intersectionality and other barriers that not everyone may be aware of. I truly believe that change begins within oneself, and it's important to give people the tools to recognize and combat biases within themselves first.
I learned about what other people are going through in their day-to-day lives and how it's so different than mine.
It was a chance to analyze and take a close look internally both personally and organizationally in my arena of work, more outside than just within our office staff.

This is a very helpful program and tool that my staff and I really needed. Most importantly, it allowed us to learn about ourselves and how we fit into a larger picture of widespread bias. It was a poweful experience for me and it is making me look at many things differently.
An impressive delivery platform ... independent study combined with interactivity and lecture enlist more participation and at a deeper level. Keeping it paced is very important as it is a well-designed progression (don't read ahead; rather, dig deeper here).
