“Christine Locke from Diversity House came to our school to deliver an Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion course. Feedback from our staff showed they found this very informative and said Christine was friendly, knowledgeable, and very passionate about the subject and her delivery was fun and engaging. I would definitely contact Christine again for further training at our school. Thank you for two very successful and well-received training days.”
