"I was planning a retreat for a group of 30 McDonald's franchise managers, which we previously had never hosted. So, I was not able to give Dr. Tana much information other than they are a group of very seasoned managers who are looking for fresh and new ideas in a broad range of topics. That was all Dr. Tana needed to put together a training session that was interesting, engaging, informative and tailored to the needs of the managers. Every single manager praised Dr. Tana for her outstanding presentation and being able to make them laugh, self-reflect and learn...all within a matter of hours."

"Our 700 person Firm had the absolute pleasure of spending some meaningful and truly impactful quality time with Dr. Session in the virtual setting, where Dr. Session creatively and uniquely educated our Firm about implicit bias, miscroaggressions, equality vs. equity and allyship, among other very important topics. Dr. Sessions’ presentation inspired Firm engagement, important discussions and education. Dr. Session addressed all questions posed throughout the presentations, thoroughly responding to all participants’ questions and providing guidance and important tools for staff to employ when navigating these challenging topics and issues. Dr. Session’s PowerPoint presentation was fun and funny, yet really drove the important points home. I would highly recommend Dr. Session for virtual or in-person learning on the topics in which she is Expert."

“Thank you so much for such an enlightening & informative webinar. I learned so much that I don't know where to begin. We're all guilty of biases and microaggressions, but it's about self-awareness, acceptance that I need to think differently in how I communicate, and take action to do better. I learned new terms such as micro-assaults, micro-insults, and micro-invalidations. I'll start referring to them as the "M" words. I'll be mindful of 5 myths about microaggressions.”
Sabriena Gibbs, USDA Food and Nutrition Service (Southeast Region)
“Thank you for today! The session was great. Everyone appeared to really appreciate the information and dialogue! I could barely keep up with the chat box. There were numerous “thank you’s” and expression of appreciation for the session. I loved the questions of wanting to know more and have a better understanding.”
Renee Wootson, Mission Support Division, US EPA Region IV
"Dr Session was open about the fact that we ALL make mistakes and she focused on Grace and doing better moving forward. I found the session very welcoming and encouraging to folks wherever they might be on their personal D&I journey. Great info and made me think differently about how I present myself to someone I don't know very well. I have never felt more inspired or empowered to take action as an ally!"
"The information you shared was stellar. I have sat in several such training's during the course of my career, and I find that your training is always current, relevant, and relatable to a person like me who is a first-generation immigrant and person of color. Keep up the great work and I wish you continued success."

"I had the great pleasure of meeting Dr. Tana M. Session as a speaker at our 9th Annual Women’s Leadership and Empowerment Conference that took place in Bangkok, Thailand. Ms. Session's speech 'Stop Being the Best Kept Secret' was a huge success and I witnessed Dr. Session's ability not only to inspire the attendees but to keep them interested and engaged at all times, taking an active part in the session, for which they found to be very fun, while also an extremely useful, learning and inspiring experience. Delegates were delighted and thankful for delivering an inspiring speech at the conference and we received only positive feedback."
