Utilizing Liberating Structures to Create Inclusive Strategic Plans

Strategic Planning means being intentional about achieving outcomes to advance the mission of a key project or program. In this workshop, we will show you how to have all voices heard as you build a strategic plan for your research team, division, quality improvement initiative, etc. Conventional planning structures can be too inhibiting (e.g. presentations, status reports, and managed discussions) or too disorganized (e.g. open discussions and brainstorms) to creatively engage people in shaping their own future. They frequently generate feelings of frustration and/or exclusion within the group and fail to provide space for good ideas to emerge. Participants will walk away with practical tools for planning a strategic planning meeting or retreat. 

Facilitated by: Clarissa Love, Program Manager, Office for Health Equity and Inclusion
