Building Bridges Across Silos for Systemic Change Workshop

  • Thursday, April 15, 2021, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

In the face of our four current crises - COVID-19, systemic racism, economic disruption, and the climate emergency - we must begin reaching across silos to address our shared challenges. In this discussion, with Anne Rhodes from CCE-Tompkins and Rebecca Evans from Ithaca College, we'll explore the forces that cause and contribute to institutional silos and ways to recognize them both within and between our organizations. We'll also examine some of the skills and tools essential to reaching across silos and begin building mutually beneficial, sustainable partnerships.

While entirely virtual, this discussion will be heavily participatory, with all participants asked to engage in break-out rooms and group dialogue. Campus and municipal sustainability staff are encouraged to attend and consider inviting local community partners.

Building Bridges Across Silos is part of the Campus to Community: Leveraging Power to Create Community-Wide Change series, which addresses campus and community relationships and interdependence. Campus to Community is a partnership among Ithaca College, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County, Sustainable Tompkins, and Building Bridges.
