Awesome material. Such rich interaction and discussion. We used Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts with our executive group and now we want to roll it out to other members in the organization.

I have one word, FABULOUS!!! This video gives real, gut-wrenching examples of individuals and situations. Most important, it challenges people and gives them the idea that they have the ability to confront stereotypes by showing them how. Ouch! Your Silence Hurts will be so helpful because most people want to do something, but don't know what or how.

Leslie Aguilar, founder of Diversity & Inclusion Center, is the most thorough and conscientious developer I have ever worked with. That’s why I continue to use her work year after year.

Leslie, I had an opportunity this morning to attend the Diversity Awareness Workshop for the first time… not just as ambassador kicking it off, but as a participant. I was truly impressed with the program — the design, the flow and the facilitation were all excellent. The facilitator, Paul, was outstanding. Now I see why the evaluations have been so good all along … excellent work, Ms. Leslie, to you and your entire team!

In 15 years of diversity work, DiversiScan™ is the first tool I've seen that captures the organizational development side of diversity. Leslie Aguilar has done an incredible job of presenting this complex subject in a most accessible way — we watched managers grasp its implications very quickly and delve into substantive discussions. Our Diversity Sponsors Network members here in the Seattle area are delighted to have learned to use the tool and they are applying it in their organizations.
