CEA’s “Changemakers Dialogues” are a series of online meetings to discuss the experiences of implementation and change within communities and local governments. The goal of the year-long series is to “Collaboratively explore, share, and make visible our collective experience creating change so that we can individually all be even better at skillful interventions”
This series was initiated by CEA because communities have moved through the awareness-raising and planning phases and are now focused on implementation as is CEA. The live meetings are open to all CEA staff and members.
Dale Littlejohn kicked off the series with a presentation and discussion on March 22, 2016. The presentation and notes are available below.
On April 20, 2016, Pat Bell shared her experiences with a focus on understanding yourself and your workplace culture.

An audio version is also available for Pat’s here.
