“I started attending the [cohort] meetings to learn from others doing similar work and get support from them. The people who come to the meetings are so talented and willing to share information and resources, it keeps me engaged with the group. I find the topics, presentations and conversations have helped me improve in my position as Deputy Operating Officer.”
