Testimonials for Dr Susan Carland

The students appreciated this visit very much, with discussion going on far past the time that Susan came. Some students were taken by the friendly and outgoing honesty that Susan provided and the way in which delicate subjects were approached. Susan was a very friendly, outgoing and approachable person to the students and the staff, and gave time to students far beyond the time allocated, which was appreciated by the students very much as well as a number of staff. Would love to have her back for further discussion.

N. Burke, St. Leonard's College, August 2015

 

Susan Carland’s session on challenging unconscious bias and perceptions, making positive change and Australia’s cultural landscape was thought-provoking and insightful. Susan has a brilliant way of balancing personal stories and insights with evidence based data from her studies. Her session was energising and left the group feeling uncomfortable (in the best possible way) and inspired.
