Copy of 2021 Webinar Culture Collaboration and Choice


Culture, Collaboration, and Choice: A Values Approach

Date: Wednesday, April 28, 2021 | 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET

Speakers: Russ Gaskin, Luzette Jaimes, and Liz Weaver

Successful collaborations launch their efforts with a conversation about how the collaborative leaders want to work together to drive change. They collectively develop a set of values or principles to guide their shared agenda.

Russ Gaskin and the team at CoCreative Consulting have developed tools, resources and strategies to purposefully assist collaborative leaders to navigate complex community change systems. Their approach focuses on deepening engagement, building momentum to advance strategy and impact.

Recently, Russ has been researching how dominant values impact collaborative efforts. Russ will share a Dominant Values Framework which reflects the domains of collaboration – ways of knowing; ways of organizing work; ways of organizing ourselves, ways of interacting and values. Join Russ, Luzette, and Liz in a conversation about the Dominant Values Framework and how this framework informs collaborative practice.

Participants will be invited to share your perspectives and ideas during this interactive webinar.
