What folks have said about the course

“This series has been such a rich learning experience. Seanna so skillfully and passionately breaks down and shares about complex and difficult concepts around systems thinking and systems change. I feel much more equipped after taking part in this series. Highly recommend both for those starting out on their systems thinking journey and for those who think they already know everything about systems thinking.”

“Seanna’s extensive knowledge was astounding and the way she kept the whole group engaged was really great. The information was pitched just right and included enough time to interact with others, self-reflect, and ask questions.”

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people and other peoples of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the land on which our work in the community takes place. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
