13 Jun OPHA WEBINAR – Developing Cross-sector Partnerships: Facilitators, Strategies & Barriers

Developing Cross-sector Partnerships: Facilitators, Strategies & BarriersĀ 

Tuesday June 25, 2019
11:00AM – 12:00PM EST

The Ontario Public Health Association is hosting a webinar series as part of the Keeping Kids Healthy through Collective Impact Project.

Working in a partnership often involves a cross-sector of people from diverse professions, backgrounds and experiences representing different sectors (e.g., education, health care, municipal, non-profit, public health and recreation) to network, coordinate, cooperate, and collaborate for mutual benefits. Developing and sustaining these types of partnerships takes time and effort. In this webinar, we will share the results of a primary study conducted to understand the facilitators, strategies and barriers when working in a cross-sector partnership. Key findings will be shared and three implications for practice highlighted. Participants will also have the opportunity to engage in a facilitated discussion.

This webinar will be of interest to anyone working in or leading a cross-sector partnership.

Learning objectives:
At the end of this webinar, participants will:

  • Recognize facilitators and barriers for developing cross-sector partnerships.
  • Identify at least one strategy for the effective development of cross-sector partnerships.
  • Reflect how the information can be applied to their own context
