Our luncheon speaker was a real ball of fire; she captivated the audience as she described the impact of domestic violence in the workplace. Ms. Jenkins’ manner of presenting the information was very effective in holding the audience’s attention. It was obvious she knew her business and had a real passion for the cause.

This was a great course; I enjoyed the group interaction and the different spin on cultural diversity and looking beyond racial/ethnic issues and recognizing diversity in terms of economics, language, regional difference, and educational status, etc.

Your workshop was extremely informative. We have received feedback from several attendees who have mentioned that they were not aware of a lot of the information that you provided to them about sexual harassment.
