What Clients Are Saying
“I am a customer of Vector Solutions/SafeColleges Training. I came across Dr. Hodo’s work when I previewed a course called Implicit Bias and Microaggression Awareness that she authored. This course showcased her knowledge and research focused on the experiences of diverse populations in academia. The course was relevant and up to date with current events affecting people of color. I highly recommend Dr. Hodo and the course.”
“Dr. Hodo facilitated a workshop on Addressing Implicit Bias: Working with Diverse Teams as part of our the Nonprofit Center’s 2020 Managing Successful Teams Series. Tammy was extremely responsive and professional in all of her communications and planning prior to the program and I was confident that she would be an excellent facilitator. During the program, she was not only extremely informative but was truly relatable as she gave personal experiences to help more than 30 students in the class to connect the dots around understanding implicit bias and how it affects their work and their relationships on teams. Our group gave her outstanding remarks for her down to earth nature and emphasis on small group discussions and getting everyone’s input. Many commented that this was their favorite session of the 5 part training series. I highly recommend Dr. Hodo and her company All Things Diverse and I look forward to additional opportunities to work with her!”
“Dr. Hodo facilitated our all staff retreat in August with a focus on IDEA from the Inside Out. Her style is accessible, personal and professional. Our team of 40+ employees said it was the best retreat and facilitation we have held at the Museum. Tammy’s depth of the subject matter and intuitive delivery was successful in reaching our team’s personal understanding of bias and how we hold our space for visitors with the responsibility of ensuring everyone feels welcome. I highly recommend Dr. Hodo!”
“Dr. Hodo’s presentation and training during our planning retreat before the end of 2020 is still receiving rave reviews from the team. Dr. Hodo’s presentation focused on developing a high emotional intelligence and being aware of implicit biases that impact our workplace relationships. Several team members expressed how much they appreciated having the time to reflect and process areas of development for themselves to help foster even better professional and personal relationships. Her approach and message delivery provided an opportunity for honest conversations with each other and ourselves”
“I highly recommend Dr. Tammy Hodo for providing a great training experience on the topic of implicit bias.”
“I had an opportunity to attend Tammy’s course on Implicit Bias and Microaggression Awareness via SafeColleges Training. It was extremely informative, up to date and imperative given the current climate of the world we live in today.“
“Tammy facilitated training on emotional intelligence and implicit bias during our 2020 staff retreat and was phenomenal. She conveyed the information clearly and was very engaging, including local and national resources and statistics to help inform and equip our team!“
