What do participants say about Launch?

Launch was really one of the best orientations I have attended. Very well organized, really effective afternoon, thoughtfully planned with very useful/helpful takeaways and activities for new hires across the spectrum of professional experience . . .

It was really helpful networking with members in many different nonprofit global health organizations. WGHA provided a lot of structure to the event as well which helps a lot when you are in a room to meet 40+ new people. . .
