GMUW Participating in FEED Leadership Program

GMUW is proud to be a key member of the Cal-Essex Accountable Health Community team which is committed to working collectively towards improving the health and well-being of the people in Caledonia and southern Essex Counties with emphasis on reducing poverty in our region. As a member of CAHC, GMUW Executive Director Tawnya Kristen has been asked to participate in the FEED Leadership Program through Feeding America and The Annie E. Casey Foundation. This 15-month leadership program is designed to accelerate improved outcomes for communities working to improve outcomes for families with children through a collective impact model. The FEED Leadership Program will support teams with leadership skills necessary to move from talk to action to advance progress on a locally-identified result, including: Developing and executing an action plan with clearly identified strategies; addressing adaptive and technical leadership challenges that arise when managing the competing interests among diverse, cross-sector partners; building the capacity of leaders to use data for continuous improvement of action plan strategies; making mid-course corrections as the landscape shifts and new priorities emerge; and building the organizational and community capacity needed for sustaining results work over the long-term.
