"We had the honour of having Annemarie deliver a diversity presentation to our Human Resources professionals at CIBC. Everyone was pleased with and inspired by her delivery style, her message and most importantly, her knowledge. In a very 'down-to-earth' way, with practical examples, Annemarie helped us understand the business imperative to have an inclusive environment and have diversity built into our business strategic goals. It is our hope that Annemarie can present to a far-reaching audience in the future."

"Annemarie provided GGC with important insights for the organization's enhanced sensitivity regarding inclusivity and diversity. She assisted with the creation and delivery of a Bias Awareness/Equity training program for our staff and Members...delivered on time and within budget. She facilitated the sessions in a challenging and non-threatening way that made the attendees think about the constructs in their lives that lead to their biases. This self-exploration was enlightening."

"Annemarie worked with a group of 10 staff from our organization to deepen their awareness of power/privilege and oppression, not only as it exists around us, but also how it may or may not be manifest through our own biases and unconscious actions. She worked patiently and attentively with us during the preparation to set appropriate objectives and was able to develop activities and exercises that were not only relevant to the reality in which our staff are working but effective in their ability to encourage critical reflection and awareness of the subtle ways in which oppression works and the impacts it has on people. We strategically planned the training with Annemarie at the beginning of the week in hopes to set a tone for the following days and it was evident throughout the week what an impact that it had on our staff, as they continued to make reference to ideas, activities and phrases from her training. We look forward the next opportunity where we can have her work with us."

"The delivery of Annemarie's interactive workshop on Diversity was really quite excellent. I appreciated her relaxed, yet professional approach and found her to create a safe, yet fun learning environment. I felt truly valued when sharing my experiences and also developed a strong connection and affinity with the other workshop participants. Diversity is truly important and should be of great interest to organizations everywhere. Hats off to B.E.E. for taking a step toward making a positive impact with people and companies."
