In this webinar, we take a deeper dive into one of the most critical systems change components – Relationships, and how to strengthen connections between your stakeholders and communities. From Staten Island, New York to Eastern Kentucky, we’ll be hearing stories from the field about what’s worked (and what hasn’t) when working together across different experiences and viewpoints to reach one’s goals.
