What People are saying

Jen, thank you for the thought provoking presentation yesterday.  It provided a framework for continued revelation toward recognizing the diversity challenges we can face at SSFS.  We are a more informed board and look forward to our diversity work.  Although the topics seemed "heavy", your presentation helped to "lighten" the information and allowed us to think with depth. Again thanks so much.
