The human services field is bursting with opportunities to collaborate with internal and external partners, but how do you bring people together in positive, effective, and creative ways; ensuring full participation and buy-in? This interactive session will focus on how to utilize Facilitated Brainstorming and Graphic Facilitation in meetings and as planning tools, while supporting successful employment outcomes  You will have the opportunity to participate in a live facilitated brainstorming session and practice skills using these tools on your side of the virtual session screen. We encourage you to have some blank paper or a sketch pad on hand as well as a few markers in order to practice skills during the session.
