 One of my favorite parts of FBH is the range of professionals and community members who participate. Brings in a diversity of perspectives and experiences I don’t see as much in my day-to-day work context.

 Thank you so much, Kathy and Denise, for your incredible leadership throughout this experience! I got so much out of it — it makes me feel hopeful and more empowered to support my organization and our work going forward — beyond just meetings!
