Bridges Out of Poverty- Part 2: Institutional Lens

October 14 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm MDT

This workshop is an in-depth extension of the Bridges Out of Poverty workshop and builds strategies to break down poverty’s barriers and embed new constructs. This session introduces change strategies for program designs, policies, and procedures. The session is designed to take the constructs introduced in the Bridges Out of Poverty workshop and help participants begin embedding them at the institutional level.
