“Kathy’s sessions are engaging, interactive and nonthreatening. She creates a brave space where people can honestly engage and learn from each other’ stories and experiences.”

Renee Pusey

“My awareness of Microaggressions has leaped from “What is it?” to “Aware & Able to Identify”. Dr. Obear used great personal examples which demonstrated how we all can benefit from a self examination on this topic.”

Deanne W. Hurley

“Doing work around inclusion and equity is hard. Dr. Obear uses humor and story telling to help people to understand. Everyone comes into professional development at different levels and she does an excellent job at not shaming or blaming but trying to help others have self-awareness and an appreciation for others.”
