Partnering with Your Evaluator: The Key to a Good Evaluation
March 27 | 11 a.m. | Dr. Tara Gregory & Dr. Sarah Jolley
Grants and various projects often require an outside or third-party evaluator. For many in community organizations, evaluation isn’t the first thing on their minds. So, your evaluator is the one who should know how to address grant or project requirements. However, an evaluator can’t do it by themselves. They need you to be a partner in evaluating your program in order to get a full understanding of what you do, which leads to the most accurate data and results. This session will focus on what evaluators can offer you….as well as what they need from you in order to conduct a good evaluation that helps you answer the important questions about what you do.

Equity - A Key to Greater Teamwork!
April 3 | 11 a.m. | Patricia Houston
Participants in this workshop will delve into the significance of equity in teamwork, gaining insights into its profound impact on collaboration. Through interactive discussions and activities, we will explore practical strategies aimed at fostering equity within our teams and reflect on actionable steps to cultivate a team culture where members feel valued and empowered to contribute to the work of the team.

The Work of Teaming
April 10 | 11 a.m. | Teresa Cornejo
Effectively working in teams requires more of us than showing up or providing task updates. It requires engaging intentionally, having choice and control over our participation, creating safe environments, being mutually supportive with each other and tapping into each other’s strengths, interests, skills and talents. This workshop will offer strategies for healthy teamwork and integrating trauma-resilient practices into our team cultures.

Worst Practices in Team Performance
April 17 | 11 a.m. | Carri McMahon
Join Carri McMahon for this humorous take on the best practices trope. We'll examine over the top workplace horror stories and share our own ideas of alternative ways to manage similar - hopefully less extreme- situations.

Going Far, Together
April 24 | 11 a.m. | Cy Rogers
We all know that working together is the best way to move work forward but how do you maintain a team long term? This highly interactive session will help you learn and refine strategies and approaches for keeping, engaging, and growing a team over time. Because we can only achieve our dream work if we can keep the team healthy and together long enough to make it there.
