"Working with Inclusive Voices was a great experience. By the end of the project, we had done some great work together and the final report was very informative for both our board and our membership. We have already started to implement the suggestions and are getting a great response from the community."
"Terri Brennan offered our board a safe space to have difficult conversations and move forward with a mutual acknowledgement that we had more room to learn and grow then we would have admitted prior to this meeting. This pivotal conversation has helped our organization take strategic action to develop a First Nations strategy that is supporting active inclusion in our community."
"As arts organizations move forward in becoming an effective ally during this period of Truth and Reconciliation, Dr. Brennan’s expertise is invaluable and we are grateful for the foundation she gave the staff to move forward more confidently."
"After a 3 hour journey discussing respectful connections and cross cultural collaborations, our membership felt very positive with many people commenting on the respectful tone and the ability to hear, and learn, from their peers. Overall this was a terrific opportunity and I would recommend Terri-Lynn to lead any type of workshop. Great Job!”
"The Murney Tower Museum is thankful to Terri for sharing the Indigenous history of[the Tower's landscape] and for the translations she arranged in both Mohawk and Ojibwe. This was the first permanent Indigenous exhibit panel of its kind in our community, produced by an Indigenous person with input from Indigenous leaders. The accompanying audio of a Mohawk Thanksgiving address and the presentation of Indigenous languages across the panel itself have really resonated with our visitors. Thanks to Terri's work we are able to reach visitors from all over the world with this part of our community's history and culture."
