Trainings in trauma-informed practices and racial equity concepts are essential for the work we do; however, how do we move from knowing to doing? This Mini-Conference is intended to explore and strengthen our agency, organizational, and collaborative approach to use Community Needs Re-Assessment data to drive decision-making and prioritization of goals and action steps, as well as refine and communicate these priorities and values through the development of a vision statement. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn from a North Carolina community about its efforts to deepen authentic and collaborative racial equity work. Content and activities will allow for community-specific, small-group discussion and opportunities for questions and reflection.
By the end of the Virtual Mini-Conference, participants will be able to:
· Describe and discuss results from the Community Needs Re-Assessment by reviewing responses, confirming areas of need, and providing feedback on presented results.
· Illustrate the knowledge to action process by examining an example “knowledge-to-action roadmap” from SAMHSA’s Community Trauma Initiative.
· Begin or continue the process of crafting a vision statement for your agency, organization, collaborative, and/or community that highlights trauma-informed and racial equity approaches.
· Recognize racial equity and authentic inclusion approaches, strategies, and practices from the work of a Cohort 3 community.
This training will take place on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 from 9am-12pm.
