"Carla has honestly made this experience wonderful. I enjoy how flexible the classes are. This timing is not best for me, but I make sure to listen if I can and watch the recordings always! It is absolutely accessible."
"The best thing about this course is that on top of the instructor and participants’ industry knowledge and insight, there’s a wealth of information provided outside of classes. Having access to the class recordings, PowerPoints, relevant articles, reports and a class group chat is incredibly helpful for the work I do."
"It provides me with real-life examples. The open discussions are great. My colleagues are very knowledgeable, and I am able to use their experiences to guide my own path."
