Virtual Event: Building Relationships and Partnerships Between Indigenous Communities and Health Organizations: Sharing the Journey of the Promoting Life Together Collaborative

Date: December 3, 2021, 11:30-1:00pm ET

This virtual event will mark the launch of the Story of the Promoting Life Together Collaborative two-part virtual learning series. The panel will discuss and share lessons learned regarding relationship and partnership building within the Collaborative and organizational readiness of non-Indigenous health organizations to the work. Clips of videos, including the 45-minute Sharing Our Story video will be shown as panel members answer questions and share reflections and learnings of their experience with the Promoting Life Together Collaborative.

Together, we will:

  • Discuss key elements to support the development of meaningful relationships and partnerships between Indigenous communities/organizations and mainstream health organizations
  • Consider lessons learned for organizational readiness to support relational work that encourages reciprocity
  • Discuss from a community perspective how trust was built to foster engagement and partnerships, leading to culturally appropriate and community driven life promoting activities
