“Sondra took a sensitive subject and presented it in a way that provided valuable tools for employer management teams. At a time when the nature of the workplace is litigious, it is more important than ever that we understand a diverse population. The only regret we have about your presentation is that it had to end and are very interested in having you return.”

“I strongly recommend Dr. Sondra Thiederman to any organization in need of a speaker on workplace diversity issues. Sondra spoke to our group of 600 and managed to exceed our expectations.

Her engaging style and ability to address complex issues enabled Sondra to quickly establish credibility and lead an active exchange of ideas which resulted in the identification of several follow-up actions.”
