Individual, corporate and institutional trainers have found this material useful. Here is a comment that was made in a personal capacity:

"I have just read your Runnymede Trust paper under the above mentioned title and wanted just to say how useful and stimulating I found it. It will certainly inform my thinking about equality and diversity within our work here. Thank you".

Paul Taylor, Head of Strategy, Learning and Skills Council, Essex
