"I've participated in quite a few diversity trainings and this was one of the best. Kristin's energy, delivery, ability to set ground rules and then engage everyone in a relaxed, meaningful, and safe way was terrific."

- Marcella B. 

"The fact that certifications and strategy building are married together is what puts this experience over the top and sets EXI apart from the competition. I left feeling like I built more depth in my knowledge, skills and capabilities and more confident as well."
