Because of increased interest in training programs and recent COVID precautions, several events have been created as online or hybrid options, so that participation is available at the national and international level. Leslie is doing fewer public programs so that she can turn her attention to working with non-profits and agencies that recognize the important of building an emotional resilient work culture as they address environmental and social crises. Recent in-house and public programs include, NOAA, Omydiar, Post Carbon Institute, CivicSpark, 3Degrees, Woman, Food and Agriculture, Rad Power Bikes, ReScape California, HopeLab, EKR Foundation, Partners in Emergency Preparedness, American Psychological Association, Earthjustice.

Stay up to date with current offering by following Leslie on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram. To book an event, click here.
