“On behalf of Clackamas County, I want to thank Greg Taylor for the outstanding training he provided our management teams and their employees during the training day titled “A Day with Greg Taylor.” Mr. Taylor demonstrated a keen ability to translate concepts regarding Implicit Bias in ways training participants understand and can apply practically when carrying out the work of Clackamas County. Our managers and employees found his content material regarding Implicit Bias relevant, insightful, and well sourced. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive. We look forward to bringing Mr. Taylor back to Clackamas County to present further training in other equity, diversity and inclusion areas.”
Emmett Wheatfall, Director, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion County Administration, Clackamas County, Oregon

“Greg’s workshop was well-researched and provided many useful facts and resources. As promised, it gave me a new lens to apply to this problem. But most important, it made everyone in the workshop feel safe to share and learn as allies against a common problem; this left me inspired to do more courageous work in the future.”
Lisa Bernhagen – Highline Community College
“Thanks Greg. I found the presentations offered valuable insight into the challenges facing refugees as they look forward to safety and a new start. Your insights and observations added weight to the presentations and your passion and commitment to making a difference powered the discussions.”
Alan Painter – Manager, Unincorporated Community Service Area Program, King County
“The exploration of diversity, equity and inclusion is centrally important within government agencies and departments. Unfortunately, government often lacks the safe environment necessary to have meaningful conversations that can change the organizational culture. Greg has the confidence, sensitivity, and non-judgmental approach to create the safety necessary for government employees to engage in this conversation with openness and curiosity, not defensiveness. It is in this space that individual and organizational transformation can occur, working towards a new environment that honors diversity, prioritizes equity, and aspires toward full inclusion.“
