Dr. Emord did an excellent job in facilitating the Strategic Planning Session of the API, Inc. Board of Directors.  To prepare for this assignment, she was required to survey historic documents of the organization as well as of the parent organization, AISES.  She additionally had to present in such a way as to exhibit cultural competence and sensitivity in working with a Board of Directors made up of Native professionals in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).  I highly recommend her for Board facilitation and planning activities.

Excellent staff workshop and board training. Both groups were very impressed and told me how much more they learned from these events than previous ones.

Dr. Emord facilitated a day-long session with volunteers connected to a youth mentoring program.  This session brought about a renewed sense of energy on the part of all.  A process of brainstorming and organizing potential contacts and resources resulted in a sense of clarity and hope about the future of the program.
