"With over ten years of college experience and countless trainings, this was the most rewarding training I've ever attended. [E]veryone who presented was very knowledgeable and well-spoken and I never found myself bored or overwhelmed with the material."

"While I was initially skeptical of the online component, I like that it afforded an opportunity to work as a team with a new group of people. Having that experience before meeting in person created this connection, both with the amazing people on my team, as well as others ... the successes and challenges created a degree of solidarity that was established on day one of meeting in person. I believe this lent to the rich discussions we had throughout the course, with students being more open to share personal stories and perspectives from the onset. As for the in-person component, which was certainly most valuable, I particularly appreciated the guided discussions, whether they focused on lessons learned from a reading or a specific skill. There were many gems I look forward to applying in my work going forward, including strategies for best serving those depending on us, as well as supporting the people we depend on to live up to their expectations."
