The Partners’ Club hosted a wonderful January Cohort Partners’ Orientation Lunch on Sunday, January 7th. The event was sponsored by the HBS Student Association. New partners were given the opportunity to meet one another before the rest of the students and partners returned from Winter Break. If you are a partner and missed this event, don’t worry. All Partners’ Club events are open to all partners during the month of January. After January, events are restricted to dues-paying members. Please join us at one or more of the upcoming events and find out what we’re all about, meet other new and interesting partners, and just have fun!
