As we approach the end of this 3-year program, we want Team Leads to feel empowered as leaders, to build confidence as champions of this work, and to develop relationships and connections that will continue after the program ends. During this retreat, RBN team leads will continue the conversation around sustainability and discuss how they will sustain their work. Participants will leave feeling more connected to their peers and comfortable reaching out to other Team Leads in the network for support.

More information to come but please register by Thursday, October 5th.

Who should attend this event

We ask that each RBN team sends one team lead to the RBN Team Leads Mini Retreat.  If a team lead is unavailable to attend, please identify another team member to represent your team.
