The NWCHIR Learning Community is a network of cross-sector partners across Antrim, Benzie, Charlevoix, Emmet, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Manistee, Missaukee, and Wexford counties with a common interest in amplifying resident voice and power, promoting health equity through systems, policies, and practices, and strengthening the 10-county digital neighborhood for improved cross-sector coordination and alignment. Through dialogue, exploration, and co-creation, the NWCHIR Learning Community supports deep learning within individuals who can then cross-pollinate and amplify those learnings within their organization, agency, group, and/or community.
The Learning Community gathers virtually every other month on the third Wednesday of the month from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm. These gatherings are open to anyone interested in connecting around the three priority areas. We aim to cultivate a convening space where all are welcomed, included, and feel a sense of belonging. In addition to virtual gatherings, a Google Folder is used to house meeting materials, resources, and other aligned documents for individuals to use and share.
