What People Say

Dr. Laura McGuire is phenomenal. People say that, people exaggerate, and extend - this is not the case. Dr. Laura McGuire provides background, context, depth, character, analysis, examples and knows boundaries. Her work is thorough, strong and succinct. Our organization has engaged her through several ...engagements and each one has been better than the one before, that is something! We look forward to continue partnership with Dr. Laura, her ability to listen, be flexible, and understand the outcomes we were trying to achieve and the nuanced way she was able to communicate important and highly expert information was really spot on. What can I say? I am waiting for more!! Content PLEASE! The first time I heard Dr. Laura speak I was enthralled, her presentation of the material was comprehensive, strong, and her personable and compassionate communication skills are above expert - you will want to sign up for more before what ever you engage in is over.

I reached out to Dr. Laura McGuire in a desperate attempt for some validation and guidance, as a recent victim of civil rights violations. Dr. McGuire was one of the few who listened when I was dismissed by everyone else. As a victim, I needed to be heard and the heartfelt response I received back kept my fight...alive. I cannot fully express my appreciation for the generous time and gracious response I received from an unsolicited message. Dr. McGuire is obviously deeply committed to equality and truly makes a positive difference in this world. Thank you, Dr. McGuire for making such an impact.

Not only were ...Dr. Laura and her team subject matter experts, they created an open environment where the SARCs and VAs could learn, share, and inquire on the various topics.

Dr. McGuire, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your workshop "Queering Advocacy." As a prevention educator and women’s studies graduate, these are topics that are dear to my heart. I loved your presentation - your style, your content, and your openness to helping a field that is very female and heterosexually focused become inclusive to the range of sexual violence survivors who need our services. Thank you for your research and your advocacy.

We had Dr. McGuire lead trainings on TIC for our entire staff.
It was only a huge success for our outward facing attorneys, but for our in office communication style, our marketing department, our case management staff, and our director level leadership. I cannot recommend having your team trauma informed enough... especially if you work with populations who are very very likely to have experienced significant trauma.

Dr. McGuire was a consummate professional and more. While Diversity & Inclusion (D & I) is a primary topis of training these days, Dr. McGuire trulu EDUCATED our forum on how to effectively address ressistance to diversity initiatives and her voice become both allies and conscious adversaries. I learned more from her in her 20-minute address than I had in many years of diversity work. I heartily recommended her as an expert in all aspects of D & I.
