New Client! Comagine Health: We launched a multi-session Relational Leadership program with the national nonprofit healthcare consulting firm Comagine Health, engaging approximately 140 participants from their QI department and related teams. Four cohorts are participating in a series of three sessions each, running concurrently now through early June. Sessions dive deep into such topics as Psychological Safety and Positionality and Power, fostering meaningful discussions and growth opportunities.  

New Client! Pear Suite/Caring California: We’re partnering with Pear Suite to deliver a four-part Relational Leadership workshop series to community health workers who are participating in the California Department of Health Care Access and Information (HCAI)’s statewide training/workforce development program, Caring4Cal. Pear Suite, provider of the Caring California training series, is a digital health company that empowers community health workers to better assess and address the social drivers of health via a customizable care navigation platform.

California Improvement Network (CIN): Fifty participants from across CIN’s partner organizations are attending a five-part series, Transforming Culture, Building Connection Using Relationship Leadership. Monthly sessions focus on building community, fostering a culture of psychological safety, and learning how to take transformative action, and will continue through early August. The California Improvement Network is a learning and action community that advances equitable healthcare for Californians through cross-sector connections, spreading good ideas, and implementing improvements.  

OCHIN Relational Leadership for Clinician Leaders (RLCL): Clinical leaders from OCHIN’s Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) participated in the Spring 2024 cohort. HCCN is supported by a grant from HRSA and is the largest of its kind in the nation. We are pleased that there is increased demand for RLCL within the OCHIN community and are grateful to the dedicated OCHIN staff members who trained and facilitated this program. We’re looking forward to supporting future cohorts.
