One recent past participant said in evaluation, “I thought I’d be bored and this would be a lecture style. I was engaged and I have a lot of ideas and excitement now.” Another said, “I have never been in a space where I felt like I could really be myself and my ideas mattered. Thank you for taking me seriously.”  People generally leave feeling stirred up and excited to get to belong to our community.
