CBHL Member Leadership Conversation | Engaging the Workforce Amid Systemic Realities
April 28 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm MDT
As leaders, how do we keep the workforce engaged in direct service work when systemic racism, inequities, and barriers to change can make their work feel futile? During a recent leadership conversation, a member raised this question, prompting a request for further discussion with CBHL members. Even when organizational leaders attempt to engage at all levels – doing their part to serve individuals while pushing for systems change – operationally, individuals may not feel like change is happening quickly enough. How can we, as leaders, continue to support the workforce at all levels?
Join us for a participatory leadership conversation on Thursday, April 28 at 10am PST / 11am MST / 12pm CST / 1pm EST to further explore this topic and identify key actions we can all take as leaders.
Key themes from the conversation will be captured and used to identify training topics for a future webinar.
