From the organizers:
Are you a local, regional, or national food systems network leader hungry for new ways to shift the food system through collective action? Eager to connect with fellow network leaders, learn new skills, and challenge old ways of thinking? Then join the Wallace Center’s Food Systems Leadership Network, Food Solutions New England, and 25 of your peers in Durham, New Hampshire this May for a unique convening and retreat for food systems network leaders.
“What has most changed about my understanding of systems leadership since this retreat is that I always knew it would take broad based collaboration to make change, but I didn’t really see any movement big enough to actually have the potential to accomplish that change. This retreat is the first time I’ve seen sparks of that potential.” – New Orleans Food Systems Leadership Retreat participant (Summer 2018)
This retreat will focus on three interconnected skills of network leaders:
- The ability to see and understand the whole system we are trying to change (systems thinking);
- The skill of enabling others to see the system for what it is (facilitation of reflection and dialogue); and
- The ability to serve as a leader grounded in racial equity, inclusion, and a shared vision for the future (leading from the future).
