Some words from our clients

"As a participant in racial caucusing, I am learning so much!! The pre-recorded lectures and readings are extremely informative and thought provoking. The way Dr. Washington has laid out the curriculum is effective, digestible, and engaging. The discussions within each group are honest, open, and welcoming. So happy to be a part of this effort in our department. I am able to share my knowledge with my friends and family, spreading this important information to all!!"

"I felt that I had a somewhat developed racial literacy, which I quickly realized was not as developed as I'd hoped it to be (which was a good experience-to be able to quickly recognize my growth curve, where I was *actually* starting). Before the training I would often stumble through discussions about race but sometimes couldn't identify why that was. I feel like now I have a really good framework to go back to to help myself understand the whys and hows of my racial identity..."
Nursing Faculty 
"It has made me more thoughtful about my interactions with my BIPOC colleagues and recognize the many missed opportunities I've had over the years to practice/embody allyship. For so long I didn't feel like I necessarily needed to be part of discussions on diversity within the department and I recognize now that I absolutely must be part of that work."
