“Thank you so much for an exceptional GVC SHRM program!  The scenes were crisp & well written, the actors did an amazing job, and the facilitation was excellent!  The participants were clearly engaged and impressed.  Theater-based training is very effective for sensitive topics like diversity & inclusion.  I highly recommend Impact Interactive!”

“As a leadership educator, I was looking for new and creative ways to engage student leaders on issues of diversity and inclusion. Impact interactive gave me everything I was looking for: the activities were meaningful, fun, well-structured and applicable. Jodi and Allison created an atmosphere where we could be open, vulnerable and accepted. The performance educators helped us ease into the activities with great playfulness, empathy and sense of humor. I left feeling elated by a sense of possibility for the radical, deep change that sets you on a new course without looking back, and just want more of this for our community. THANK YOU Impact interactive! I will do everything I can to have you back!”

“Thank you Allison and Jodi for your time with us.  I’ve attended a number of diversity workshops and your session was the most creative experience I’ve had in regard to discussing what for many is a difficult topic.  I appreciate all that went into making it feel like a safe environment!”

“I was looking for something more meaningful than a power point to present sexual assault education to our students.   I wanted to create an opportunity for continuing dialogue.  Thanks Impact Interactive!  I have had countless students say that the workshop was “real.”  The theater based performance was an amazing addition to our program!”

“Recently, I had the group Impact Interactive come into my Business Ethics class. Their theatre based learning exercises really engaged us and provided a thought provoking and relevant experience. I thought it was a really effective way to get at some ethical issues in an organization.

“Impact Interactive conducted two workshops as part of the College at Brockport’s Diversity Conference.  The workshops were engaging, thoughtful, and challenging.  The planning and organization that went into the preparation for the workshops was apparent.  And the teaching was thorough, energetic, and relevant to the conference. I felt lucky to be able to participate!”

“Impact Interactive is one of the most compelling and powerful communication tools I’ve ever experienced.  I’d enthusiastically suggest it for  a Superintendent’s  Day presentation.  Teachers would be engaged, refreshed and intellectually stimulated.  Visually, it demands and holds your attention.  It is effective yet fun….LIVE “animation” with many opportunities to feel empowered.”

“This is a powerful way for teachers to explore difficult-to-talk about classroom challenges.  I highly recommend it to any university or college wanting to raise the quality of teaching in their classrooms.”
