Equally Well webinar series: Growing our collective impact

As the Equally Well collaborative enters our next phase to maximise collective efforts to achieve physical health equity, the backbone team hosted a series of thought provoking and interactive webinars from May through to August, 2021.

The webinar series was a fantastic way to help us reconnect, develop new solutions and look to expand possibilities. Many new as well as existing Equally Well champions joined several inspiring panellists who provided insights to help us strengthen the reach and impact of the Equally Well collaborative, including Darryl Bishop (Ember Korowai Takitini), Barbara Disley (Emerge), Kahurangi Fergusson-Tibble (Te Pou), Tui Taurua and Dr Reena Kainamu (Ngā Waka O Matariki – Equally Well Māori health strategy), and our independent evaluator, Dr Alicia Crockett and her team.

In case you missed one or all of the webinar’s you can find out more using the links below.

Webinar 1: Leadership structures and backbone functions

Webinar 2: Ngā Waka O Matariki

Webinar 3: Evaluation findings

Webinar 4: Expanding possibilities

Working as a collaborative, delivering collective impact means learning to work in different ways.

The webinar series has led to the activation of Equally Well action teams and champions ‘lunchtime’ meet ups. Three weekly Zoom sessions will allow us to frequently join as a collaborative to share our Equally Well actions and make new connections. They are also an opportunity to further develop the Equally Well movement and action teams.
