“Attending the Workplace Fairness Certification workshop was time and money well spent. The instructor(s) are outstanding. Quality resource materials were provided and there was very interesting discussion generated amongst the participants. A professionally framed certificate is presented at the end of the workshop.”
“The event was well organized and both facilitators were excellent. The atmosphere was lively and engaging. Both speakers were incredibly knowledgeable and did extremely well educating the participants while encouraging participation and interaction throughout…I have attended workshops where I left feeling exhausted because I was not made to feel entirely comfortable, but this was not the case with Blaine and Marjorie. I would attend any of their future offerings in a heartbeat!”
