“AMAZING! This was honestly the best training I have ever been to. I’m leaving with a better understanding of myself. Activities were so rich and we were able to dive so deep! Loved it!”

Jessica Grout, Auburn Youth Resources and Empowered Living Therapy

“Cultures Connecting conducted a workshop for our staff on cultural competence training techniques. Our academic, professional and research staff found the presentation to be engaging, provocative and informative. I would definitely recommend them to others.”

Dr. Sarah Cusworth Walker – Division of Public Behavioral Health and Justice Policy, University of Washington

“Cultures Connecting has been instrumental in helping our Race and Social Justice Committee successfully address challenging situations as we focus our mission within the Seattle Housing Authority’s Community Service Division. They led our committee volunteers through a strategic planning process in which we created a clear plan of action as well as a more productive committee process. As one of the volunteer co-facilitators of our Race and Social Justice Committee, I greatly appreciate the ongoing guidance and support through the difficult work of social change within a large organization.”

Joy Bryngelson, MSW – Community Builder, Seattle Housing Authority

“Dr. Hollins gave a captivating keynote at the PNAIS Co-creating Inclusive Communities Workshop.  She shared her personal and academic experience and as well as her own reflective writing, to deliver a powerful, thought-provoking and inspiring lecture.  In the words on one attendee, ‘We could not have asked for a better keynote speaker’.”

Emily McGrath, MBA, CNPA – Director of Professional Development, PNAIS

“I am so glad we made the choice to go with Cultures Connecting for our all school faculty and staff training.  It’s obvious that the trainers are well versed in the area of diversity and brought into focus issues that are often overwhelmingly complex.  Prior to the training, they were generous with their prep time to ensure the materials were relevant to the Overlake community.  Their delivery was a great balance of humor and seriousness that put people at ease but did not belittle the important message of diversity.  I have since recommended Cultures Connecting to my colleagues.”

Mark Manuel – Director of Diversity, The Overlake School
