Description/Other Details
Diana Autin will begin the session presenting an overview of the Community of Care Consortium, a grant funded project focused on improving collaboration with stakeholders. Ms. Autin will describe the project’s implementation process, how they defined and measured collaboration, share examples of their successes and challenges, describe their project outcomes and how they are sustaining the work now that the initial funding is over.

Following Diana, Courtney Salzer will present on WI FACETS and Wisconsin SPDG’s collaborative work. She’ll describe the paradigm shift that occurred when WI FACETS and SIG/SPDG began to focus on measuring collaboration, how their role as a parent center in a collaboration-focused initiative developed over time, and how measuring collaboration on the SIG/SPDG has positively impacted their other projects.
