Evidence-Informed Program Planning within Diverse Cultural Contexts


This workshop will provide an overview of how to co-develop an evidence-informed health program that incorporates theoretical and empirical evidence and engages community stakeholders in the planning process. We will provide an overview of the six steps of the Intervention Mapping process, and how a trauma-informed approach can enhance the creation of more effective evidence-informed programs within diverse cultural contexts.


Building Data Capacity to Tell Your Story


Data is an essential tool that can help shape your work in your community. Data can help you pin-point areas of focus to maximize your efforts with limited resources. In this workshop, we will cover the value of data collection, how to store and manage data, and identify data resources. Participants will learn how to integrate data and storytelling into their day-to-day work.


Grant Writing 101 for Non-Profits


This workshop will provide an overview of best practices for grant writing for non-profit organizations. Participants will learn about funding sources, grant proposals, program narratives, and tips and strategies for grant writing for non-profit and public institutions.


Use Your Voice: Advocate to Change Your Community


Advocating can increase health equity in your community and make the voice of the community heard. Workshop attendees will learn how to communicate ideas and concerns to policymakers and how to engage them. This workshop will explore different forms of policy, Nevada’s state legislative process, and the differences between advocacy and lobbying. It will also build on participants' experiences to help them find what will work best to make change and mobilize their networks.
