“The Inclusive Leadership program was a welcome compliment to work that I am engaged in with nonprofit consulting. Communities are demanding more diversity and inclusion from their boards of directors. They want representation from people directly connected to their cause. The professor was able to communicate to me personally in the program was a greater recognition of empathy, trust and implicit bias. The breakout sessions were expertly coordinated so that each of us had an opportunity to engage and express our views and learn from one another.”
