“UPEACE creates a dynamic and stimulating online experience. The use of breakout rooms allowed me to have small group exercises with other participants, just as we would do in a normal classroom setting. In just an hour’s session, I was able to truly connect with the group, while learning a practical framework. Overall, this online session was more interactive than most in-person workshops I’ve attended!”

-Zahra Karsan, Speaker, Coach, Founder & CEO of GetZENd
