Convening for Colorado
Convening for Colorado provides support to bring people together to discuss issues central to advancing the health and well-being of Coloradans. Convenings provide dedicated time for people to share information, learn from experts, personally engage and actively deliberate with the goal of tackling a tough challenge or taking advantage of a timely opportunity. Whether participants have shared or disparate views, are from diverse geographic regions or the same neighborhood, are from one sector or an array of occupations, a collaborative dialogue can serve as a powerful means to help achieve change.
