“The NGE structure allowed for many breakout sessions where I was able to really connect with other NGE participants on a deeper level, hearing their personal stories, challenges, and successes. This allowed us to build connections with people from other organizations, as well as several that worked for my own company. I feel like I was encouraged to leave my comfort zone and speak about topics that are not discussed in my day-to-day.”
