Ask the Expert: Launching Our Learning Together: Using Peer Learning Networks to Achieve Collective Impact

In an effort to support the Healthy Start Community of Grantees as we strive to “Achieve Collective Impact”, the EPIC Center will be launching six peer learning networks (PLN) each targeting a subset of HS grantees. The PLNs will be co-facilitated by a team member from both the Healthy Start Grantee Community and the EPIC Center. The PLNs will provide the opportunity for all grantees to learn from their peers, dive into more CI content, get exposed to additional CI tools that can assist when working through each of the CI conditions, and develop an action plan reflective of the unique characteristics and phase each grantee is currently in.

We are excited about the opportunity to create space to both learn from one another and highlight examples from the Healthy Start field as we continue the Collective Impact journey. Please participate on this webinar to learn more about the launching of the Collective Impact Peer Learning Networks.   This webinar would be appropriate for (but not exclusive to)  Healthy Start Project Directors, Program and Backbone staff involved with the Community Action Networks/Collective Impact Initiatives, Chairs/Key Stakeholders in leadership roles on the CAN/CI initiatives.
