I think that I have started to change since starting this training, along with the other work that I've been doing outside of this training. It really does help to hear that other people struggle with having these conversations and I am not alone in this. I continue need to practice running toward that feeling of discomfort rather than keeping my mouth shut.
It also makes me feel more equipped to speak up and take action when I feel something is wrong with the systems in which I work. I still don't know exactly how that will work, but I'm becoming more involved in volunteer opportunities and conversations around this.
