WEBINAR | People, Planning and Process – Building Collaborative Leaders

Webinars and Videos, Community Building, Homepage Resources

In September 2020, the Danville Regional Foundation launched Collaboration Lab, a 10-session collaborative leadership development experience. Collaboration Lab is a partnership between Danville Regional Foundation, Tamarack Institute, and Healthy Places by Design.

For an overview of the questions asked to the speakers and where to find them in the recording, please see the YouTube description.

With leadership at the core of the program’s mission, Collaboration Lab members participate in a learning journey in which they explore how to create a stronger Dan River Region through cross-sector collaboration. Participants contribute diverse perspectives from a variety of sectors, backgrounds, and experiences to this ten-month program that uses experiential learning and practical application activities throughout. This program is designed to truly be a learning journey, customized to the unique needs of each person in the cohort and the changing environment. During each session, the group helps guide future content. The program includes the opportunity to complete a planning sequence for a new collaboration or enhance an existing collaborative effort, with the help of national experts and local peers.


Join Annie Martinie, Tim Schwantes and Liz Weaver as we discuss how to build a culture of collaboration across a region, curriculum design, and lessons learned when engaging collaborative leaders during a pandemic. We will also discuss their unique collaborative partnership which was developed to design the Collaboration Lab.


Speakers: Annie Martinie, Danville Regional Foundation, Tim Schwantes, Healthy Places by Design and Liz Weaver, Tamarack Institute
