I highly recommend Gwen White as a GRI Standards trainer. She has an in-depth knowledge of the Standards, their predecessors (G3 & G4), and the best practices for their adoption. Her passion for sustainability reporting and her 30 years of experience as an educator shine through in her teaching. I’ve had the pleasure of attending both the GRI Certified Training Course based on G4 Reporting Guidelines and the Transition to GRI Standards course taught by Gwen. Both were very engaging courses with practical application exercises and I felt confident in the knowledge gained from them. During the trainings I really enjoyed how she always provided real world corporate examples to illustrate how best to apply a principle or tool. After I completed the class while preparing for the exam, she was always very responsive to additional questions I had about the material.
I took GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) certified training program last year and Gwen was the lead instructor for this program. With her teaching experience in accounting and her hand-on experience in developing sustainability reports for Ball State University, she was able to articulate the course content with real world examples. She was very engaged with us during class room exercises so that we could develop our own sustainability reports when we leave the training program.
I can unequivocally state that Gwen’s teaching method and her engagement with us during the exercises was very beneficial to me.
