"This workshop afforded me an incredible opportunity to learn and reflect upon my own experience and how I can do my work better. I particularly found value in the tools that helped me understand the different forms of racism. The sample dialogue for difficult conversations were invaluable. I would recommend this class for anyone. Thank you!"Executive Director, Manatee Community Foundation
