Favorite Aspect of CFT
"Learning from the expertise of coworkers and external partners, supporting their work in creating an impact, and having the opportunity to make connections to the larger CFT and community goals are my favorite things about CFT. The talent, intelligence and passion on all of the teams at CFT are motivating and edifying, and they make the job fun."
