"Your book is a beautiful masterclass - such a perfect balance of concrete strategies and vulnerable realness. So dang refreshing and helpful, especially as I continue to grow internally and as a space-holder for other groups."

- Ben Rueler, In the Area Productions

"I have read a lot of books on race, equity, and shifting organizations – and from my lens, Inside Out is the most practical and inclusive. I wish I had read it 5 years ago. It might have prevented some of the mistakes I’ve made and the organization has made. I’ve recommended it to several people. It's a huge contribution and is full of valuable and practical insights."

- Jody McVittie, Sound Discipline
