"SFU’s CED program was a life-changing experience for me. It gave me an understanding and language for my gut values and some affirmation that I am not weird or alone in the world." -Rashmi N.

"Worth every penny. If I had the time I’d take the course again! It was a game-changer and has provided me with new perspectives that have continued to stay me in my daily work and personal life." -Eden Y.

"A resume came across my desk yesterday from a program graduate. Seeing mention of the CED Program gave me instant confidence in the applicant's capacity, and that's pretty darn cool. Keep up the great work!" -Colin S.
