Day 1: Tuesday, February 13th, 2024

Day 2: Wednesday, February 14th, 2024



3 hours




Engaging in collaborative work involves a lot of multi-stakeholder meetings. These meetings are critical for building relationships, sustaining momentum, maintaining accountability between partners, and advancing the collaborative’s work. But how do you design and facilitate these meetings in a way that is intentional, meaningful, and spurs action?

In this two-day online workshop, learn about tools and strategies to help you more intentionally plan, design, and facilitate meetings that are results-driven and move your collaborative forward. This will be an active workshop including facilitation resources, small group discussion, and personal work.

This six-hour online workshop, split over two days, will be a mix of presentation, Q&A, personal reflection, and small group discussion. This is an active workshop that will include practice with facilitation tools.
