As a non native speaker, I found the language very clear, without the need for subtitles. Also, there are a lot of examples and study cases which helps with understanding.

Clear explanations and good examples, the best unconscious bias course I have heard, well done!

The content was simple to understand, it walked through a lot of great examples, and dove deep enough to get the point across.

I really enjoyed the content being up to date and relevant. I especially appreciated the mentions for presenting remotely and via video. "What's in my background" is something I hadn't considered before.

The course is really good! It has content that I have never seen before, applied to women in IT, and how all of us have biases, no matter our age, gender, or race.
