"Greg is a fantastic facilitator"
“Race, Bias and Dissonance is an outstanding, must-experience training for any individual or organization that wants to get serious about walking the talk of racial equity. This interactive training provides a well-structured, highly relaxed and supportive forum in which to identify and examine unconscious beliefs, values, stereotypes and other personal attitudes that undermine our “best intentions” and get in the way of doing authentic and effective social justice work. Participants walk away with an abundance of practical information and tools, as well as the resolve to strengthen their individual skills and transform their organizations and/or communities”
“I attended social justice programs instructed by Greg Taylor of Community Connection Consulting, and found the detailed information he provided useful in my work place right away. I appreciated how he created a safe space to ask those awkward questions society teaches us are taboo, when in actuality those questions are at the heart of what it means to become an educated citizen. I would recommend his workshops to anyone who is interested in social change for equity.”
“I appreciated your sensitive, patient and skilled facilitation of the workshop – thank you!”
"As a Social Service Professional who has worked for several non-profits, and who also works as an Independent Consultant, I am extremely careful about contracting and hiring other Consultants to provide services in the area of a Diversity, History, and Cultural Competencies. After reviewing Greg's Website and list of services he provided, I felt confident that he had great facilitation skills and a wealth of experienced. At the night of the Tribute, I soon discovered that Greg has the kind of people skills that yields itself to very satisfactory results. Greg facilitated a discussion with an audience of over 120 people and kept them engaged and focused on the topic at hand; the impact of oppression on women, and in particular, Nina Simone. He respectfully and courageously posed questions to the audience that allowed the audience to focus on the historical context of the music of Ms. Simone, and how her life and her compositions represented oppressed people of her time, and even now.Greg related so well with people that he created space for the audience members to open up and share their thoughts and feelings without fear of reprisal. The result, people are still remarking about how much they enjoyed the discussion, the music and the program overall.
Greg's participation was a critical piece of a very successful evening"“Of the two workshops I was able to attend I thought yours was the most thought provoking and although I knew that there was some sort of a connection between economics, where some communities are located (i.e. near and around industrial areas) and its impact on our health it was never so apparent when it is placed in the format as you stated and that the documentary shows.” “I have lost so many friends/relatives at early ages, after this I now realize just how much their diets, stress, the lack of quality healthcare and of course in my community drug and alcohol abuse all contributed to their early demise. It is a sad commentary when you put it into perspective, thanks again”
“I felt that the presenter did an excellent job in presenting and organizing this event, push on”
“Excellent Job, thank you”
"I had very little knowledge of the live of refugee, until I took your class, as someone that came to the USA, not running away from anything; I really did not understand the other side of the spectrum, for people that faced/facing such journey. I send the word out to my office this morning that your workshop was great, and when it comes along again they should go."
“Enjoyed the workshop, the information was very useful”
“I wanted to let you know that your workshop was very good, with you encouraging participants to share it sure made the session a lot more interesting.” “You're a very good facilitator & your energy & optimism kept the group on task the whole time. Thank you for that. I enjoyed the workshop & I look forward to (hopefully) seeing you at another workshop.”

“He’s very good and provided lots of food for thought for discussion”
“Excellent facilitator for discussion with appropriate interjections”
“I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation. I posted a report copied from the net that provides some info on that spraying in St. Louis. There have been similar incidences in SF, CA and other municipalities where there were and are large populations of minorities. So much injustice and cruelty. UGH! Thanks again”

“Kept us on track, personable, knowledgeable and inspiring”
“Greg does a great job and sets the right tone”
“I enjoyed and learned a lot today; first training session is well worth the time!”

“Attending Gregory Taylor’s workshop on Immigrant/Refugee Integration was a fantastic networking and learning opportunity. Welcoming new arrivals is one of the King County Library System’s key focus areas and this session was timely, educational and I received both local and national resources that will help us better serve these populations".
