The fifth dissemination step of the HEIA is more valuable than we might think. It can help you re-engage and develop stronger partnerships with stakeholders and, as a result, build momentum for social change towards a more equitable and inclusive community. In this webinar, Kim Bergeron will discuss strategies to share your HEIA results. This includes ways to communicate results with those impacted or involved with the new policy or initiative.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • identify dissemination strategies to communicate HEIA results to stakeholder groups
  • describe how they can apply knowledge they’ve gained in their daily work toward creating more equitable communities.
