“This is an amazing program that I would recommend, especially to those who have an open-mind and are genuinely interested in people from diverse backgrounds. I was able to develop the skills I’d hoped for including Cultural Intelligence and leadership. We got access to interesting organizations around Boston and worked on a challenge that is relevant to our daily life. We heard from inspirational guest speakers who had been through leadership journeys, and were able to network with people from diverse backgrounds.”
