"I had the privilege to meet smart, passionate people. Our conversations were open and raw and we connected through our stories. I am so grateful to have spent the past two days with these folks. Thanks for creating the shared experience and space to speak about subjects that are often never broached on an organizational level."- Rachel Wooden, Education Specialist, Kaiser Permanente
