Embrace Learning Through our Programming

The MARC suite of learning programs offers something for employees at all levels, including short online trainings that lay a foundation of understanding; immersive learning experiences for leaders; and everything in between.

“Attending a MARC Leaders Workshop affects leaders in different ways. For me, it was transformational. I always thought I was rather enlightened in my attitudes towards gender equity. Through MARC, I realized [… I] was only scratching the surface. I wasn’t getting it wrong; I just wasn’t getting it all. It is not enough just to say ‘I am for gender equity.’ To be an effective leader of a diverse workforce, I must make a deliberate, continuous effort to deeply understand the dynamics involved, engage in dialogue, and then act.”
