Primary Project Background:
The Leadership Learning Community has been in a learning partnership to activate and support Culture of Health networks. In 2017, LLC was funded to offer network training to more than 500 individuals and networks, and to launch the WEB network, a network of networks that were interested in connecting to advance a Culture of Health.
The learning and scaffolding put in place have created a foundation for a strong start with an Alumni Network comprised of graduates of four health equity-related leadership development programs. LLC also helped to facilitate the exploratory work to assess interest in an alumni network, identify key elements of a strategy that are attractive to alumni, synthesize internal suggestions and concerns, and formulate recommendations. This project seeks to build on and integrate these two pieces of work to activate the alumni as the catalytic core of a powerful Culture of Health network.
