VIRTUAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Facilitating Collaboration: Equitable Public Health Practices

Relationship building and collective engagement are critical to successful multisector collaborations. This two-day workshop focuses on two facilitation models, the Group Development Model (GDM) and the Feedback Model (FM). These models build the foundation for inclusive teamwork and support participants in implementing public health programming grounded in authentic relationships and equitable team engagement. This workshop is open to all who lead, facilitate, or participate in teams.

Over the Two Days, Participants Will: • Identify critical questions to move through the stages of the models • Establish power-sharing through a transparent decision-making process • Apply the models to current project work • Identify how these models support individual strengths and skills • Use an equity framework to diagnose and resolve group challenges • Engage in interactive activities and large/small group dialogue

A packet of resources will be provided to participants to support them with applying these concepts and models into their work.
