I really appreciate feedback throughout the process and hands on. I appreciate that you all made sure that the space was safe to share and inclusive.

With both of your guidance and time to spend thinking about it, I was able to solidify some of my ideas about this process, the aim, the measures, and stakeholders. I was able to translate the dream into some reality and now need to move forward to get the dream team together!

Wonderful opportunity to work with such experts who could answer ANY question with detailed and thoughtful feedback. The whole experience was at a really higher level than so many training opportunities. You all really know your stuff.
