"Most participants listed this and want to be included in more training; even follow-up training to this course. Some say this was the first time “all Leadership” were together in a training session like this. It brought our team (the leadership) to a different understanding showing us ways to better work together and treating everyone as equals. We have a better understanding of the diversity and inclusion in our workplace and more tools to better lead our departments in a better direction. We learned a lot about each other … things others did not know. It was a lot of fun getting to know co-workers better and having time to interact with them. It was very eye-opening experience. Diversity and Inclusion is much broader than we think. Opened our eyes to what we may or may not be doing. Very enlightening. The course materials were very relevant. We have a better understanding of our unconscious biases; including realizing them and how to handle it. The books, PowerPoint presentation and video were good … easy to follow and just the right amount of information. Some indicated this was the best training class attended at DHLeC. "

It's wonderful to observe participants as they learn diversity includes them too! The tools are especially helpful in assisting them in changing their own behavior as well as coaching others. The session materials, the facilitators. the overall quality, experience and professionalism of the entire PRISM team is why we have been a customer for many years."

"Thank you so much addressing my need for a Train-the-Trainer for Building Inclusive Teams. Kelly and Darrell were excellent and I know that our facilitators are now prepared to deliver the course to our employees having had the experience your team provided. It has been a journey, pilots in several of our sites, to get to this point and I am confident that we are ready to move forward with an enterprise launch. You’ve made it easy from the first pilot on! You have a strong team of facilitators and behind the scenes folks."

"I attended the one day PRISM Diversity and Inclusion Training and I wanted to pass along my very positive comments about the course, and particularly the instructor. He totally engaged the group of roughly 20 persons from Operations and Engineering. He did this by being very personable, by having great international business stories of diversity and inclusion, as well as relevant stories from his extended family from Costa Rica. The cohesive five part curriculum also aided in the great learning experience"
