2023 Summer Leadership Learning Collaborative: Leading Well-being in the Workplace


These resources are being developed from an ongoing learning collaborative for supervisors and mentors of pregnant and parenting women (PPW) programs. Although the application deadline to attend the live learning collaborative sessions has closed, the Great Lakes ATTC is making the content and recordings from these sessions publicly available so those working in PPW programs can benefit from the information and best practices being shared. New materials will be added to this page after the conclusion of each session, so don't forget to check back throughout the summer! 

This free learning collaborative is funded by the Great Lakes ATTC.
