What Our Participants are Saying

"I enjoyed the session and appreciated the time given for reflection and breakout groups. It forces you to participate; not my strong point but got me out of my comfort zone. I realize that and appreciate the session's set up. [Dr. Turner] did a great job facilitating and treating us like professionals."
- Participant, Building Personal Competencies for Inclusive Leadership Workshop
"This was the perfect last session for the Leadership Development Program. Dr. Altman gave examples of what the workforce looks like today, where it is trending and what challenges may be encountered. Informative, practical and insightful, this session made you think of how managers will need to lead and adapt in the future. Great takeaways and appreciated the reading list as well."
- Participant, Leading the Workforce Ecosystems of the Future Workshop
"We would not have taken this series if it was not available remotely (via Zoom), no travel time and 3 hours [per workshop] was perfect. The price per student was affordable and worth it... Every other week is a good pace, to give time to digest. Good group dynamic and interaction with facilitators."
