  "I gave this workshop in order to help people become more self-aware and inclusive leaders.

We also discussed the specific skills of facilitating a group, for example an interdisciplinary project

or leading a classroom in discussion. I was really pleased with the excitement, engagement, and

unique experiences that everyone brought to the table."

I thoroughly enjoyed the GISER Facilitation and Leadership workshop conducted by Marci Baranski last night.

Marci supported our group through many wonderful discussions which provided ideas and direction that I was

immediately able to act upon the next day. Thank you again for hosting such an informative event.”
