SOME OF THE RAVING FEEDBACKS
“This program was extremely well organized, and the vision and execution of this conference were truly needed. It helped me personally to reflect and to try to be courageous in being a part of the change to educate myself on how to approach the importance of diversity, inclusion and equity in an organization.”
“An eye-opener in so many ways. I loved the holistic approach to this Congress and the diversity in presenters – varied background, professionally, experientially, and personally and their experiences\stories as it relates to the topic.”
"I now understand more than ever... not knowing is not a reason for inaction. Intentional learning, thoughts, behaviours, and action are necessary - starting with me. The Congress I attended yesterday focused on critical conversations. An amazing collaboration of humans sharing knowledge, perspective, experiences, and data structured to empower everyone to be an agent of change. Amazing!"
"Life-changing. Helped me appreciate what is happening in the world around me regarding racism. Also, the after-meeting chat was very good for me training post-school. Plan to look into the ideas presented."
"Presenters were authentic and spoke with passion. I loved the slides and the remarks from other presenters. Extremely engaging. Informative. Educative. Thought-provoking. Great energy and lots of enthusiasm among the presenters."
"Overall, the content and diversity of speakers. I liked that 'we got into it' - clearly identified issues that are current and relevant to our lived experiences."
