Unifying Solutions conducted a six-week training course for the PetPeople Leadership Team. Unifying Solutions provided us with key learnings in our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
journey. They approach their training through a social justice lens sharing personal experiences and a variety of resources throughout the course. The team started with a historical foundation, shared resources and personal experiences allowing our team to learn and grow. They helped our managers shift perspectives, start uncomfortable conversations, and share ideas and thoughts around the topics of race and gender. This is not a textbook DEI class as it challenges you to sit with information instead of seeking a solution or actioning change.

“Suzanne Roberts assisted me in my personal and professional development by working with me and my organization on understanding thought provoking communications skills, trust relationships, and discovering the potency we all possess. I have achieved great success with Suzanne’s warm and sensitive approach to coaching and compassionate listening to fully appreciate all points of view when making key decisions.”
“Suzanne’s training gave us practical and insightful tools for relating effectively both professionally and personally”
Program Director for COAAA
'I recently had the opportunity to work one on one with Suzanne Roberts with Unifying Solutions. As a 25-year professional, I have never worked with a professional coach. Suzanne worked with me individually over the last six months to help me learn more about my own leadership through a challenging time in our organization's history. Suzanne also provided one on one coaching through some challenging issue-oriented conversations. She has been inspirational, challenging, and educational through the entire process. She has shown me the value of professional coaching. I look forward to continued learning.'
'Suzanne Roberts, Sierra Austin, and Karen Hewitt who comprise the UnifyingSolutions Anti-Racism Collective for Organizational Development have been an incredible guide for our organization's new leadership team. They facilitated two sessions 'Unpacking Racism' and 'Coordinating for Action'. Their insight, analysis, and challenges have helped our team learn from each other and create a path forward. While we are just beginning to learn how to be an anti-racist organization, I am thankful for the foundations that we have developed with their help. The tools and protocols that they shared with our team are valuable for our long-term success as a leadership team and a thriving organization.
