Testimonials

Jylle JoynerSr. Training and Education Consultant Texas Association of School Boards

I attended Felicia's CDE prep course and was truly amazed by her facilitation skills and the course content! Not only was the information timely and relevant, but her real-life examples added color commentary, making the three-day class interesting and engaging. I was truly amazed to learn new information and data about subjects that I thought I knew well. I feel better prepared to take the certification exam and am excited about working on my candidate project!

Time/Money Very Well Spent” During three-intensive-days, Felicia guided us through a journey of self-discovery, self-awareness and reaffirmation of our commitments to diversity and inclusion. Felicia’s knowledge, expertise, and abundance of experience in the D&I field added exceptional value to the many sessions we covered during the certification program. In addition to the sessions, Felicia encouraged us to engage in honest conversations around different topics which helped us to better appreciate, understand and learn from each other’s D&I journeys and experiences. I highly recommend Felicia as an exceptional D&I business partner

I recently participated in the (CDE)® Certified Diversity Executive Certification Prep Course. This experience served me well while sitting through the learning experience, after I left the learning experience, and is still relevant in my practice today. I have been able to immediately apply the material to help me navigate controversy and to build initiatives beyond my political reach. Without reservation, I recommend master teacher/practitioner, Felicia Johnson, Founder & Managing Director of THE GATSON GROUP, LLC.

The Certified Diversity Professional (CDP) course was so informative and fun. The opening exercise to get to know one another was innovative and set a wonderful tone for the class. The three days passed quickly with so much useful information being shared. The opportunity to learn from Felicia’s experiences added practicality to the material. It was wonderful to learn from one another in the class as well. Felicia made us all feel valued and demonstrated that our experiences contributed in a meaningful way to the experience. I couldn’t recommend Felicia and the CDP course any more vigorously! Thank you so much!

Irving Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

What a great presentation and so relevant to the American work environment. Felicia presented the workshop, "Effective Strategies for Conflict Resolution in the Workplace" at our Power Hour, lunch and learn, for our members. It was right on target with what we wanted our members to hear. Conflict is bound to happen, at some time in the workplace. It is important to, not only, know how to resolve it, but, equally as important, to know what causes is and work to prevent it.

Wendy Gramza, CCEPresident & CEO
Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce

We were excited to welcome Felicia Johnson as the keynote speaker for the Chamber’s annual meeting. As we embark on a major diversity and inclusion initiative, her insight and expertise were an important component of our overall strategy. Feedback from the nearly 600 meeting attendees was extremely positive, and we look forward to working with Felicia again in the future.

Mark Gorkin MSW, LICSWThe Stress Doc ™

I knew I was in the presence of a real professional. And then I experienced you as a "Three 'P' Speaking Pro: Poised, Purposeful & Passionate! You articulated key points and appropriately used slides to reinforce the "D & I" message. Your brief yet emotionally charged story about tactfully confronting and ultimately engaging a closed-minded individual touched everyone in the room.

Inclusive Leadership Class Participants

Felicia was a fantastic instructor! She knows the content well, encouraged open participation and kept the class focused. Felicia welcomed and encouraged open discussion and followed through by supporting us when we did so.
