"The JONES Strategic Diversity Institute was/is an amazing experience. What sets it apart from other institutes in my mind is the way the facilitators integrate cultural competency skills and principles with the organizational development focus. I haven't seen any other D&I program do it in this way, and I still use the things I learned there in my daily leadership at school."
