Carrie Burds's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Foundations Workshop provided invaluable capacity building for the Jean Augustine Centre's staff and board. The training was not only informative but also encouraged us to dig deeper and have honest conversations about how we as individuals and as an organization can create positive change.  Carrie is truly knowledgeable and passionate about the DEI sector.  I would highly recommend her services to individuals and organizations seeking to learn and implement sound DEI practices in their personal and professional spaces.

Carrie's level of expertise on the topics of power, privilege, unconscious bias, microaggressions and micro-resistance is extensive. I have personally learned a lot [from her sessions] in these areas and I know our staff at Merit has too.
