"Conscious Use of Power 2017 has been one of the most transformational trainings that I have ever attended. I have continued to use, share, and reflect on the frameworks, ideas and language around rank, privilege, and intersectionality that I learned. Most importantly, I am now connected to a new family of changemakers who continue to inspire me and fuel the work that I do." Tesicca Truong, Co-Founder, CityHive Vancouver
