Testimonials

I would highly recommend this course to others, especially as a part of the Certificate in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion program.  This course pulled together the learning's from the first three courses in this certificate program and allowed us the opportunity to consider our learning's and how they apply to our personal and professional lives.

It provided us the opportunity to self-reflect and take our learning's and move forward with them.  This course has provided me with a great shift in my thinking, awareness and actions and I look forward to continuing my learning in the EDI space.
