Local Voices Webinar Announcement

Please join the Center for the Study of Social Policy from 3:00pm – 4:15pm (EDT) on Wednesday, December 10th for a webinar focusing on the core capacities needed to achieve lasting community change. The webinar will focus on lessons from the Making Connections initiative and highlight research from the Local Voices report released earlier this year, which focused on the capacities communities developed that led to improvements in systems, programs, and in the lives of children and families.

Participants will hear about how Making Connections communities increased their capacity to conduct results-focused work in terms of 1) developing strong local leadership, 2) solid partnerships, 3) shared use of data, and 4) engaging community residents as decision-makers.

Key questions that will be addressed include:
  • What key capacities do communities need to be effective in mobilizing for lasting change?
  • How did these increased capacities lead to changes in outcomes for children and families?
  • Are these capacities self-sustaining – and what investments can be made to support and strengthen them over time?
Presenters for this webinar will include:
  • Juanita Gallion, Senior Consultant, Center for the Study of Social Policy (moderator) 
  • Scott Hebert, Principal Consultant, Sustained Impact 
  • Sili Savusa, Executive Director, White Center Community Development Association 
  • Dana Jackson, Former Director, Network Center for Community Change 
  • Dr. Henrietta Munoz, Vice President, Grants Research and Evaluation, United Way of San Antonio 
  • Lamont Hulse, Lamont Hulse, Leader, The Community Workshop
