**Participant feedback (Summer 2020)**
"This is vital training that all companies should do"
"This is an essential training for any company or anyone, who cares about awareness relating to matters of inclusion and equity."
"It's accessible, informative, participatory learning that probably should just be taught to everyone as part of their general education. It will help your individual viewpoint and awareness as a practitioner or manager, together with raising questions and generating ideas for developing inclusion in your organisation."
"It's made us look deeper into how we work and make changes that will make us a more inclusive and thoughtful company."
