“As far as the presentation, we thought it was amazing! I honestly learned a ton and I am genuinely irritated that the history lessons I had in school had left so much out. As far as our DEI commitment at DTE, JANM went above and beyond to meet our expectations. Our DEI journey is still in its infancy stages, but we are open to learning, discussing, and listening.”—Michigan DTE Public Utilities


“A stimulating, unfiltered, and eye-opening exploration of Japanese American history, and did a great job of keeping everyone engaged, fielding verbal questions as well as chat box dialogue.”—Slickdeals
