Communications For Coalitions Learning Series
Registration to these sessions is limited; priority will be given to Urban Waters Federal Partnership representatives and other members of the Urban Waters Learning Network.
This fall, the Urban Waters Learning Network is sponsoring the 3-part Communications for Coalitions Learning Series, led by Brandon Hayes of Bold Bison Communications Consulting. This virtual learning series is designed to enhance the skills and capacities of coalitions and multi-stakeholder partnerships, including the Urban Waters Federal Partnership locations and others. Each of these 90-minute, highly interactive sessions will focus on the particular opportunities and challenges inherent in communicating the work of coalitions. We encourage participants to attend all three sessions, if possible.

Building buy-in among partners, stakeholders, and the public can be a complicated and time-consuming communications challenge. In this highly interactive learning session, we will explore approaches to coalition communications that ensure clarity, inspiration, and action.
Storytelling and Message Creation (Part 2 of 3)
November 4, 2:00-3:30 pm ET
Sharing stories is crucial for communicating among partners and with outside coalition stakeholders. In this highly interactive learning session, we will practice building storytelling skills and translating elements of those stories to compelling messages.
