I’m proud to offer you another FREE webinar on communication in multi-sector collaborations via Train.org. Thanks to Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, and the Region 2 Public Health Training Center for inviting me back!
If you have to communicate with partners outside public health, including businesses, lawmakers, and the media–this is for you. And credits are available.
This webinar is second in a 3-part series designed to introduce communication skills that can support leaders in public health departments, specifically as they engage in multi-sector partnerships.
Did you miss the first one? Check out Building BRIDGES: Understanding our Position in Multi-Sector Communication to learn five concrete steps to help you identify your own assumptions, professional positions, and personal values to illuminate your current communication strengths and needs.
Using the approach of building BRIDGES, this second webinar focuses on communication with partners outside public health, including businesses, lawmakers, and the media.
Public health professionals are often tasked with bringing diverse stakeholders together to find common ground in practice and policy. In these cases, it’s essential to be able to build on commonalities, and communicate across differences, recognizing various stakeholders’ goals, assumptions, and approaches.
You’ll have the opportunity to explore the main challenges in successful cross-sector communication. You’ll examine how communicating with multisector partners contrasts with communicating with a public health audience. And you’ll learn the steps for building bridges to potential collaborators.
- Describe how to identify core components of others’ positions
- Explain how different perspectives on needs or problems can clash
- Identify systems and structures that support collaboration
Free and open to all. Check it out here!
And keep your eyes peeled. Part 3 is coming!
