“Our directors and middle managers experienced CuriosityBased's Giving Feedback workshops. The hands-on nature was very effective. The small group size allowed for meaningful discussion and individualized coaching from the instructor. We also got to strengthen our trust in one another by giving each other feedback. It has inspired us to find time to give each other feedback on a regular basis. It's a great team building exercise too.”~ Yomara Gomez-Naiden, Vice President, Corporate Quality, AGC Biologics
“I attended three workshops via Zoom facilitated by Julie Pham and they were very effective workshops, with great use of breakout rooms, small group learn/do sessions and evaluations. I will incorporate the techniques and tactics that I learned both personally and professionally. My favorite was how to apologize well: something as humans we all need to do. Learning to do it appropriately is key, and that workshop nailed it.”~ Linda Bookey, Program Manager - People Operations
“I took three of the workshops on communication skills and I found each one to be helpful in different ways. One of the most unexpected ways they benefited me was to simply make space and time in my life to be more self-reflective. It was helpful to do this reflective work in a setting with other people so I could learn from their takeaways too. I left each session with new information about myself and how others perceive me that I will be able to use in my work life.”~ Mary Dunaway, Executive Director of Development KNKX 88.5 FM

"My team at LRDG grew exponentially participating in the series Exploring Race-Related Assumptions with Dr. Julie Pham. Often people enter the spaces of race conversation with great trepidation while we should enter with enthusiasm and curiosity. We were renewed, energized, and filled with the desire to move our work forward fearlessly in racial equity and environmental justice."~ Ruby Love, Principal of Love Resource Development Group, LLC
“At first I thought 2.5 hours was going to be too long to keep our team’s interest. However, the time flew by because the content was very engaging. It wasn’t like other DEI training I’ve participated in, where we focused on key concepts. Instead, we shared stories around race and were encouraged to learn from one another. The surprising bonus was how connected my team felt to one another by the end of the session, which is especially important now that we're working remotely."~ Elizabeth Scallon, GTM/Operations for Alexa Fund & Startups, Amazon
“Hiring Julie to help us conduct research and design a pilot program was one of my best decisions ever! Julie combines scholarly rigor with a pragmatic approach and has an eye for creating actionable plans and recommendations. She was able to help us design engaging forums to elicit honest community feedback and convened diverse stakeholders to inform the design of our pilot. Julie is uniquely qualified on cross-sector initiatives because of her deep experience working with grassroots organizations as well as with the business community. I was grateful for her strategic support and sharp analytical skills on the project.”~ Pearl Leung, Community Engagement Leader
