"GBA+ helped me to understand how I can review, analyze and interpret policy with the added component of considering and recognizing the diversity of an environment. The course challenged me to broaden my approach to performing investigations relating to matters within the Department of National Defence community. I recommend it for those who wish to understand further how gender and diversity must be considered in every facet of the work we do."
