Community of Practice Update: Striving to Nourish & Thrive

We are deeply excited to have now hosted two Nourish and Thrive gatherings and want to extend a heartfelt appreciation to those who joined the conversation!

The past sessions were filled with open sharing of enthusiasm, thoughts and ideas for shaping this emergent collaborative network!

Some highlights from our initial gathering included:

  • Members sharing their excitement for a consistent opportunity to press pause, come together, collaborate and learn from one another.
  • Discussions of possible future CoP session topics, including strategies for deep listening within our community organizations, funding and grant writing best practices, opportunities for community advocacy/getting political & more!
  • A consensus that the network will evolve through time alongside the interests, needs, and connections of all those engaged in our CoP.

Thursday, April 25th from 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM – Leaning In: Fostering Inclusive Programming & Community Empowerment through Active Listening

This session will focus on strategies and opportunities for meaningful community engagement and listening. We will explore pathways to empower communities through integrating their voices into programming efforts and fostering conversations that reject the common focus on individual shortcomings and instead, delve into the systemic issues at the root of folks’ need for support.
