Workshops by Dr. Sunita have been an eye opener. One student in particular approached me after the presentation and told me that she had attended without any idea of what to expect, and that she was blown away by the presentation. I cant imagine how much more in the audience felt. We would surely book her for the next batch.

Her findings were given accurate and thorough coverage while personal anecdotes made the information relatable and accessible. Dr. Sunita’s passion is palpable, and even for those who do not understand transgender issues, it is difficult not to be moved by researcher's fierce desire to advocate for the rights of the transgender.
