Complete your Storytelling Pitch and submit it to the RBN Club by Friday, October 29th.

The objective of the “Storytelling Pitch” is for grantees to share their vision for the work in Year 2, resulting in a specific, actionable request of organizational leaders.

The audience for the “storytelling pitch” at the November 4th session may include 1-3 individuals from your organization, such as a clinical leader, an administrative leader, and/or another key stakeholder for your RBN project.

Who should attend this session?

All RBN program participants are expected to join this call. We also ask for you to invite 2-3 leaders/stakeholders to participate in the Year 1 Showcase. Please send Nikki the names, titles, and email addresses of the leaders/stakeholders you would like to invite to the showcase by Thursday, September 23rd.
