This event is the prelude to the Equity Foundation announcing 5 online scholarships to train under Alicia Rodis and the ICD team from June through to December, 2021 to gain a ‘Certificate of Completion’.  This certification enables the graduates to provide the services of an Intimacy Co-ordinator, under the continuing guidance of Intimacy Directors and Co-ordinators Inc.  We strongly suggest anyone thinking of applying for the scholarship to attend this In Conversation.
