 Creating a Multi–Generational Inclusive Workplace

The dynamics of your workplace is changing.  This Program is so timely and important! It is a difficult area to discuss as we are concerned about offending.

Lauran Star creates a safe place for us all to learn. She understands the discomfort around certain topics—making uncomfortable conversations feel normal and not judged.  More to the point she helps us all gain correct informative/ knowledge. The content is impressive and the retention materials keep on coming.


This program helped me too better understand, communicate and build amazing work with my counter parts and clients.

Gender Identity:

Creating an Inclusive Work Community

I am not a fan of sensitivity training until now. Before it was a check the box however this program provide more insight and solutions to build a bridge among my peers.  Culture is everywhere and understanding the differences will make a large impact on how we do business.


This program is filled with cultural information around the workplace and interactions. LS  was amazing and able to make the training specific to our company and its needs. She focused on specific cultures that we are working with as well as peers.  I walked away with a much better understanding and realized we are more alike than different!


Great Stuff!
