Feedback from past events

Martina Hranova 

Inclusion and Diversity Champion at NortonLifeLock

"It was amazing! Thank you! I have to say I was skeptical - some of these forums are nice to have, but you don’t walk away with much more than an uplifting feeling that lasts one day. I loved the participants and the takeaways!"

Marinda Monfilston

Diversity Program Coordinator at Yale University

"As someone that attended this event in person the last time it was offered, I still walked away feeling inspired and revitalized virtually. This was my first hybrid conference and it was absolutely amazing, and engaging. And I’m so thankful for our leaders having an opportunity to have this experience as well, to be reminded about the important work we are doing, and that they are not alone."

Ninh Nguyen

DEI Program Manager at Foursquare

"I learned so much in how to engage executive sponsors, and I’m super excited about implementing some of the things I learned today into our ERG programming for 2022. You and your team were able to secure a great lineup of speakers."
