“I have been going to meetings, conferences and workshops for over 25 years and have seen many, many speakers. Each time I participated in a session led by Eugene, the entire audience was engaged, amused and we all learned something new, useful, and inspiring. I always look forward to hearing him speak. Eugene has a unique ability to connect with his audience and delivers his message in way that manages to be the perfect mix of candor, humor and seriousness when discussing the most sensitive of topics such as race, gender and equity. His use of anecdotes from his own life, both professional and personal, making him much more accessible than other speakers I have heard. I would highly recommend him to any organization.”

"We invited Eugene to provide training on how we can address unconscious bias to create or more inclusive workplace. His training was fantastic. Everyone present was fully engaged and we left the presentation not only with practical tips on how to dress bias as an organization but also as individuals. My only regret is that we did not give Eugene more time. We will definitely have him come back again so that we can fully benefit from his expertise."
-- Graeme Sharpe, J.D., Director, Employment Law and Employee Relations, Hyundai Capital America
“Eugene Whitlock is a refreshing and contemporary voice who is able to sort through the many definitions of diversity and unconscious bias in a way that develops individual perspective and builds awareness. His workshop at our college convocation was well received and provided a foundation for rich dialogue and strengthened our college culture of inclusion for the year ahead.”
-- Dr. Kathleen Rose, Superintendent/President, Gavilan College
"Eugene is an excellent trainer and obviously an expert in his field. I have had the pleasure of having him present at our recent Asian Pacific Americans in Higher Education (APAHE) national conference, and his workshop on diversity, equity, and unconscious bias was data driven, spot on, and impactful to a crowded room of educational leaders. He greatly delivered it to us."
-- Wyman Fong, National Board of Directors, Asian Pacific Americans in Higher Education
"College of Marin had the pleasure of working with Eugene Whitlock on two separate occasions. His training on diversity, equity and unconscious bias is nothing short of excellent. His presentation style is engaging and the content of his presentation is interesting, informative, and very timely! I highly recommend Eugene Whitlock as a both presenter and facilitator."
-- David Wain Coon, President, College of Marin
"Eugene has been to our campus on two occasions to provide equity, diversity and unconscious bias training to administrators, faculty and staff. The feedback from the participants was amazing and the best I have ever seen for this kind of presentation (and I have seen a lot of them in my 30+ year career). Eugene is by far not only the most knowledgeable trainer on these issues but also the most entertaining. He delivers what can often be confrontational or controversial material in a way that engages participants at all levels of an organization. Everyone left the training with new information and practical tools that they can use right away to make positive changes in how they interact with their colleagues. We are bringing him back as soon as possible to train our Board of Trustees and I would recommend him to anyone interested helping their employees understand and address their unconscious biases."
