Welcome to our second monthly check-in email. The one I sent on June 15th was very successful—many of you jumped on the training and networking opportunities and I heard back from many of you about how things are going. Thank you! As always, I offer my support during your Encore Fellowship and I appreciate hearing from you on how things are going.
Congratulations on landing your Encore Fellowships!
We had no new Encore Fellows this month. Remember to tell your friends back at Intel about the program!
Encore Fellows Gatherings
The first Zoom meeting, for this cohort of Encore Fellows, was a hit! Chris Hart, who is wrapping up her Encore Fellowship at Catholic Charities Oregon, educated us about the organization and its mission, and then shared her accomplishments and lessons learned (presentation here). Thank you, Chris, and to all those who attended. We had a great discussion and it was fun to see your faces and touch on old connections!
These are planned for the last Wednesday of the month, 12-1 p.m. Mark your calendars! Logistics and presenter details will be sent the week prior.

Sharing Contact Information Across Fellows
One question I often get is, “Who are the other Fellows?” Since no one has objected to me distributing contact info across the Fellows group, I plan to share next month. If you do not want to be included, please let me know.
