In 2021, we launched Communities in Conversation – a vibrant, fast-paced, action-focused, cross-sector think tank. Offered as a virtual conversation that occurs bi-monthly, this is an opportunity for people to foster deeper connections, share knowledge and resources, and leverage these virtual gatherings as a springboard for regional and multi-state collaboration.
The format consists of a round-robin dialogue where challenges are presented in a forum that supports rapid feedback and creative problem-solving. During Communities in Conversation we pose the questions: “What issue are you trying to solve and where do you need a partner, an alliance or access to certain kinds of resources (knowledge, capital, etc.)? Where are you stuck?”
