“Dr. Jack just acknowledging this tension for us is more affirming and lastingly useful than any typical "practical advice" could ever aspire to be. Thank you.”

“Interesting enough I can relate to what Dr. Jack is saying.”

“It is a delicate line to expose the system, while also attempting to play the game. A lot of great thoughts were added here. Thank you Dr. Jack.”

“As a white woman, I often struggle with equally excepting my privilege and the sexism that I have faced throughout my college career. This conversation has helped me in the path of navigating how I am a true ally.”

“I'm so thankful for everyone's vulnerability in this space. It is a clear indicator of how safe we are all feeling in this space.”

“As an upcoming high school teacher for underprivileged students, my toolbox has grown. Dr. Jack has shown me tools I was not even aware I needed; I am grateful to be equipped with these now!”
