Testimonials

Gabrielle Claiborne and Linda Herzer are gifted trainers with a genuine talent for presenting factual information in a fun and interactive manner that touches hearts and minds. They implemented a moving and engaging educational seminar for public health researchers here at the CDC. Collaborating with Linda and Gabrielle to plan this educational seminar was a delightfully smooth experience.

Greg Bautista, MPH Health Scientist Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Transformation Journeys Worldwide is a great business partner for organizations looking to advance the importance of transgender inclusion. Gabrielle and Linda helped UPS’s LGBT & Allies BRG better understand trans people in the workplace by educating us on the importance of terminology, sharing personal stories and providing resources, all to drive a more inclusive workplace.

Susan Smidlkofer Global Director of Diversity and Inclusion UPS

When Gabrielle and Linda present, the overriding feeling is that you are in capable hands. The obvious depth and breadth of their knowledge, specifically around the realities and challenges that face transgender individuals, their colleagues, and their clients, allows for an outstanding educational experience.

Orlando Bishop President Align Performance

The Business Resource Group I co-lead had the opportunity to have Gabrielle and Linda present their program “How to be a Good Trans Ally at Work and in the World” and it was wonderful. They shared helpful information outlining the experiences of trans children, youth and adults and how people in the health care field can more effectively support them. Super professional, detail-oriented and fun to work with.

Will Acosta Human Resources Business Partner Kaiser Permanente

Our keynote speaker, Gabrielle Claiborne, shared her journey of “embracing her truth” with such passion and humor that attendees at our Pride Power Lunch and Learn were engaged and enlightened to be even stronger allies for our transgender colleagues.

Ashley D’Cruz ERG President Georgia Power

Linda and Gabrielle presented an engaging, interactive and thought-provoking lecture at the annual Georgia Academy of Family Physicians meeting, as part of a day-long Transgender Medicine education track. As the first presenters, they set the tone for the day by inspiring conversation and highlighting the need for healthcare professionals to understand how to welcome trans patients. Most importantly, they gave a heartfelt presentation with persuasive and motivating evidence for why this is so important.  I would highly recommend Gabrielle and Linda to any organization that cares about diversity and equality.

This team reached our audience on a human/emotional level while being sensitive to our corporate environment. I highly recommend Transformation Journeys for companies seeking to grow and develop awareness of Transgender people, many of whom are employees, clients, or friends and family members of our employees.

Emily Schur Sr. Vice President, Global Talent Sun Life Financial

This counselors training was one of the best I have ever attended! The combination of research, information, video clips, discussion, and personal stories made the training highly engaging and effective. It was exceptionally balanced in presenting the clinical and experiential aspects of the trans person’s journey.  I highly recommend this for both clinicians and educators.

We partnered with Transformation Journeys Worldwide to host a Transgender Student Health Symposium. Gabrielle and Linda are outstanding professionals who were a dream to work with. From helping us craft a vision for the event to delivering engaging and informative trainings, they worked with us to determine our needs and devise solutions for addressing them every step of the way.
