In 2019-2020, the Hudson River Watershed Alliance conducted a needs assessment of local watershed partners to better understand the barriers they face, along with their strengths and accomplishments.

The 2020 virtual conference will focus on the needs of watershed groups, including trainings to meet those needs.

Speakers:
Julia Farr & Shaniqua Bowden, Kingston Land Trust
Micah Blumenthal, Good Work Institute

Shared leadership shifts away from hierarchies and towards mutual accountability, decision-making, and conflict resolution. The benefits include empowerment, healthier work relationships, and more even distribution of responsibilities. This shift requires trust, along with new policies, practices, and ways of communicating. Micah Blumenthal from Good Work Institute will provide an overview of shared leadership models and definitions of key ideas to frame our conversation. Julia Farr and Shaniqua Bowden from Kingston Land Trust will share how they have implemented a shared leadership model to better meet the needs of their organization and the community. Kingston Land Trust protects environmentally and socially significant land, while working collaboratively to address inequities by making land accessible to the community.

Cost: $10
Level of engagement: Interactive, video and audio are recommended.
