2024 Small Group Sign-Ups

The Women in Global Health (WGH) Seattle small groups are designed to create community and foster collaboration and peer-to-peer mentoring. We’ve heard so many inspiring stories from leaders and participants alike. We invite you to join us by signing up for one of the small groups below!

We leave small group sign-ups open so that newcomers can still join small groups throughout the year. The first meeting for 2024 is listed below for each group. We encourage you to sign up in time to join the first session if you’re able.
