Better Together: Collaborating through COVID and Beyond (Bradford County Regional Event)
Better Together: Collaborating through COVID and Beyond
Presented by: Anne L. Gingerich, MSW,
Long before “coronavirus” became part of our everyday vernacular, collaboration was a hot topic in the nonprofit sector. Now, months into a global pandemic, it becomes more and more clear every day just how connected we all are. For many, COVID has simply been the nudge they needed to get creative with new ways of working together to support our families, our organizations, and our communities – all while respecting physical distancing guidelines and stay-at-home orders.
Now that COVID has taken that first step, giving us the “pause” we needed to start experimenting, what’s next? What level of partnership is appropriate? With whom are we most aligned? How can we ensure we’ll be stronger together than we are on our own? How do we actually get started?
PANO and United Way of Bradford County are excited to host “Better Together” to bring this conversation to life featuring:
9:00 AM – 9:15 AM | Welcome & Intros
9:15 AM – 11:00 AM | Community Collaborations: What Does it Really Take? (Anne Gingerich, MSW, Executive Director, PANO)

Knowing how, when, with whom, and what type of partnership is right for you is a process riddled with questions. In this workshop, we’ll cover the different levels of collaboration, the importance of collaboration for sustainability, and what it takes to build a successful collaboration, including:
This workshop will be rooted in guidance from the Standards for Excellence as well as real-life experiences, drawing from the wisdom in the room to paint a collective picture of what “better together” could look like in Bradford County.
