Mandy Levine has delivered virtual sessions of her Intro to Bias and Prejudice training to our team members and has been exceptionally well-received. She is an engaging and energetic presenter who creates a safe space for participant interaction on sensitive topics. Mandy is a true professional – responsive, flexible, warm, good-humored, and incredibly knowledgeable.

We contracted with Mandy Levine Consulting to provide Diversity and Inclusion training for the KMA team. Mandy’s presentation was engaging, enlightening and extremely valuable in confronting unconscious bias, and recognizing that embracing diversity benefits everyone in the workplace -- and beyond. Mandy’s expertise with this complex and potentially fraught subject allowed for a delivery that was candid and clear, yet relaxed and comfortable. The feedback from my team has been overwhelmingly positive.

Mandy provided our company with a dynamic, insightful, and highly accessible training on implicit bias. Mandy was able to keep the training engaging and interactive, which is no small feat when presenting virtually to a large group you have never met before. The quality of content of her training was exactly what we were looking for. Our expectations were not only met, they were exceeded.
I highly recommend Mandy’s training to challenge you and your team’s understanding of equity and inclusivity in the workplace.

Few people find the prospect of diversity training terribly exciting, especially when they assume they've already built an inclusive and harmonious workplace. But we found our time with Mandy Levine to be far more than simply "checking the box". Her engaging and transparent approach, sharing personal experiences and pulling us into her narrative, enabled our group to more clearly perceive our daily interactions through the eyes of both our colleagues and clientele. These are invaluable discussions, especially at a time when we are all increasingly aware of the effort required to maintain societal cohesion, and for a company - that can translate directly into productivity. Mandy's the one you want leading those discussions.

I can't say enough great things about Mandy Levine's bias- and prejudice-related trainings. In 2019, South Portland hired Mandy to facilitate anti- bias and prejudice trainings for 100 of our employees and South Portland has plans to continue to expand those trainings to remaining South Portland staff as soon as possible. Mandy was incredibly effective: employees who were reluctant going in were on board coming out as Mandy is knowledgeable, approachable, and makes participants feel at ease during difficult conversations. I highly recommend her.

Mandy Levine was recommended to us for Diversity and Inclusion training. Our team was so impressed with Mandy’s extensive knowledge and experience. Her training was valuable in bringing more awareness to the potential impact of unconscious bias and prejudice. Her presentation style was fun, relatable, interactive, and informative. This training will serve as a starting point for our team to continue learning and expanding our knowledge and practices around diversity and inclusion.

We are a fast-growing Architecture + Construction company that works with clients all over greater Portland and beyond. As we expand, we are experiencing more and more diversity with our staff, our clients and the projects we take on. The timing seemed just right to do a training on Prejudice, Diversity and Inclusion. We called Mandy with our request and she came prepared and positive. She touched on such sensitive topics with such genuineness, humility and grace that it opened up the entire room for conversation and engagement. I have had constant feedback from our team about how much they appreciated and learned from the workshop, and some are wondering if she will be back to do another training. I hope so.
