"I am a Secretary of Defense Corporate Fellow working with Microsoft this year. I would like to congratulate you on creating the best diversity training program I have experienced... the course did superb job taking the diversity discussion out of the normal race and sex domain and putting it into the larger context of the myriad differences we share as a society. Finally, the course continually linked the importance of diversity and inclusion to the accomplishment of Microsoft's core mission. Thank you."
