NACEDA & BHPN Joint Webinar: Partnering with Healthcare to Create Career Pathways
Apr 21 — 10 am Pacific Time
From the Build Healthy Places Network and the National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations (NACEDA):
Join us for a webinar exploring how community economic development organizations can partner with healthcare institutions to create career pathways in historically-marginalized communities. The webinar will bring together inspiring leaders whose work is showcased in an upcoming publication — the Community Economic Development & Healthcare Playbook — co-authored by the National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations (NACEDA) and Build Healthy Places Network (BHPN).
Learn from local leaders about cross-sector partnerships to create training opportunities, offer career pathways, and leverage assets from health institutions.
Be part of the dialogue as speakers discuss strategies for cross-sector partnerships and the unique assets and resources they bring to the table to address the racial wealth gap and health inequities in their communities.
