WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

I myself have attended several other trainings on the same subject, but found your presentations much more intimate and direct to the populations we serve... I have no doubt that the time spent today with our county's counselors will have a huge impact in both awareness and in helping our youth with the learning and knowledge to identify and support our at-risk students.

LARRY A. CANTER SENIOR PROGRAM SPECIALIST - DIVISION OF PUPIL SERVICES - LOS ANGELES COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION

I want to thank you for getting us The Empower Youth Program. I am so impressed and I believe EVERY middle school in the country should be doing this program.

BRIDGET LaROCK CSEC ADVOCATE, ESCAPE TO PEACE, WASHINGTON

iEmpathize’s impactful and moving media was incorporated into the Women in the World Summit’s segment on the perils facing women and girls in Mexico and Central America. The brilliant and original footage informed, engaged and inspired our audience. We are so grateful for the partnership with iEmpathize and hope we can work together on women’s issues in the future.

ALYSE WALSH Producer, Newsweek/Daily Beast PRODUCER, NEWSWEEK/DAILY BEAST

I have been inspired by the creativity that has emerged from a desire to preserve the dignity of humanity and still tell a compelling story. To use artifacts that tell a story takes the viewer out of the usual and expected response of visuals of sad and pitied faces into a broader and more diverse way of showing important issues. This methodology inspires us to respond out of passion and hope rather than pity and helplessness.

HELEN SWORN PRESIDENT, CHAB DAI, CAMBODIA

The exhibit was extremely impactful and created an awareness and understanding of the issue of exploitation, and a motivation to take action in the future.

MELINDA L. CAIN, PHD PROFESSOR, UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT BOULDER

This was one of the BEST trainings I have been to . . . This has become a passion of mine recently, and this training has given a fantastic framework to work with families.

The more I attend conferences and learn, the more I see that everything iEmpathize does is done with excellence. Your approach to the issue, your strategies, and the way you communicate really set iEmpathize apart.

CONFERENCE ATTENDEE DENVER, CO

iEmpathize has specifically strengthened the impact of TAT. . . In a day where the medium of technology accounts for a significant portion of how people communicate and learn, iE media has played a vital role in helping us package the TAT message in a compelling and inspirational way, thus enabling TAT to educate, equip, empower and mobilize a major player in the transportation industry to become modern day abolitionists.
