Gabrielle and Linda are exceptional trainers. Linda’s attention to detail resulted in a trans and non-binary inclusion training that was specific to the needs we have in this law school. Gabrielle’s openness in sharing her own story allowed out community of faculty, staff and students to feel a sense of ease in engaging in a conversation that allowed us to learn how to be better advocates and foster an inclusive environment. Together, this team has a synergy that made a two-hour workshop feel like a chat with friends.
