What Clients Are Saying

People had a lot to take away from the session. I liked how you approached it and your facilitation created a very impactful experience. It left me in a reflective state about what was shared during conversation with one another, but I also felt a new connection with others, many of whom I did not know, because of the experience we shared. I felt that this was a powerful aspect of the experience.

As I continue on my personal & professional journey of understanding systemic oppression and privilege, Melissa has been a tremendous thought partner and resource to me. Her framework around healing and human connection has provided profound insights to both the dynamic complexity and delicate nuances of diversity, equity and inclusion work. Melissa's intuition and work is truly powerful and one of a kind.

Sarah Castle | Toast, Inc. | Manager of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

You were such an incredible addition to Unconscious Bias Week at Northern Essex Community College. I have been speaking with the attendees and they've all mentioned they're walking around the halls with a different perspective than before the workshop.

Daniel Keating Jr. | Northern Essex Community College | Student Affairs Committee

In a special workshop that Melissa led at Historic Newton, people with different personal histories found a way to connect with honesty and depth. It was a transformative experience for all who participated.
