Making Meaningful Connections

California Presenters held a phone seminar for CP members with Marcy Hinand, Principal for Helicon and author of their most recent groundbreaking report Making Meaningful Connections, on Wednesday, December 3, 2014. She gave a guided tour of the report’s findings: that organizations who successfully engage diverse participants have made an explicit, sustained and organization-wide commitment to change, regardless of whether special funding is available. This commitment manifests itself in ways that both cut across the entire organization, and are expressed in specific components of their work.

CP Members can access the recording via our Members Only page.
