This was one of the best self-study programs I have taken! The content was rich -- I could hardly take notes fast enough, and I kept rewinding because the facilitator had so much good information to share that I wanted to be sure to capture it. Definitely recommend! Thank you!

We’re looking at developing a D&I program and it covered a few things we haven’t thought of. The presenter was good and content was good. I was hoping to hear more questions from the attendees. I also liked the resources provided. My first webinar with cpe and it was a great experience. Thank you!

The content was great and April was an excellent presenter. She was clear and concise, included relevant information. The examples and exercises were helpful. I had some difficulty with the recording and had to stop and go into a different browser (Chrome instead of Edge) but was able to manage.

I enjoyed the pieces I was able to hear, but I had several technical issues and was not able to hear the audio on much of the webinar

This webinar lacked substance. It was a boring ppt of things most of us already know.
