Over the past few months, the United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut and The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation have engaged people throughout the community in a series of conversations and held in-depth interviews with many community leaders in which they have shared rich perspectives and thoughtful suggestions.
We will have the opportunity to discuss and reflect on the insights gained through these conversations, including the strong desire for a safe and more connected community, some of the underlying conditions and challenges that stand in the way of change, and ideas people have about how they might like to step forward to achieve their aspirations about living and working in Asylum Hill.
Rich Harwood will also share how the Harwood Institute counsels and coaches people and organizations to solve pressing problems and, using the Harwood framework and tools, change how communities work together for the better.
The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation and United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut worked on this project, which was commissioned and underwritten by The Hartford. Representatives from United Way and The Hartford will be in attendance.
