Thank you for your poll responses from our last newsletter! We took your responses to our question, “In one word, describe how you are feeling as you work during the COVID-19 pandemic,” and formed a word cloud. We invite you to react to the word cloud and discuss further about organizational responses to COVID-19 by joining the (Y)OUR Voices community’s Forum.

Graphic Design in the Development World

People respond to images faster than to blocks of text. Since individuals interpret the same images differently, it’s important to be detail-oriented and consider the target audience. In a new original blog, Husseina Bakori reflects on her experiences working as a graphic designer in the development world.

Making Sense of Communities of Practice in Global Health

A short list of CoPs in global health is available on LeaderNet. Learn more in this blog by HIFA, Jhpiego, MSH, and Circle Project and let us know if your CoP is not yet included!
