Is your business, agency, organization, college or community group interested in a training or workshop?

I thought it was the most interesting class that I have been to. I learned so much. I think the class time could have been longer so we could have touched on more topics. Thank you for helping me and my co-workers.

Workplace Training, Medical Center

I liked how the speaker treated everyone with respect. Even those opposed to him. This was helpful to see, so I could learn how to talk to others here that may not be supportive of our GLBT clients.

Workplace Training, Social Service Provider

I think the speaker from OutFront Minnesota was very effective at being professional and personal- a great balance. Helped me to better understand how complicated these issues really are.

Workplace Training, Corporate Office

I felt that the speaker was very positive, interactive, and supportive of comments made by attendees.
