Virtual Meeting Series
A growing network of people and organizations see themselves—and one another—as shared system stewards. They take responsibility for working with each other to create the conditions that each of us need to participate, prosper, and reach our full potential.
Join with ReThink Health for a new virtual meeting series. Together with a diversity of people and organizations who are fellow stewards, we will build relationships and reflect on our efforts to achieve equitable system change during this time of crisis and transition.
Our intent is to co-create—with you—a unique space to learn, share, and sense-make with fellow stewards. Each meeting will be discussion-based, allowing participants to connect with one another and engage with questions that can help us to actively strengthen the field of system stewardship in real time. We hope you leave each meeting feeling energized and equipped with practical ideas that you can use in your own work to advance equitable system change.
We’ll provide the space. We ask that you bring your presence, honesty, and vulnerability as we explore our respective aspirations, successes, and failures.
Each virtual meeting will be 1.5 hours long, held every other month through early 2020. You can register for one, some, or all four meetings (for ease of scheduling we offer two time options for each topic). Space is limited, so register today to reserve your space. Here are brief descriptions for the full virtual meeting series.
Stewards who are involved include:
- A mix of local and national leaders
- Working in different domains affecting
regional well-being: health, economy, environment, democracy, placemaking, education, and more
- Well-networked individuals working in well-networked organizations
- Successful for different reasons, so we can learn from one another’s strengths
- Diverse in race, ethnicity, gender, and age

Connecting through CaseMaking and Catalytic Moments: How strong is your case for equitable system change? How are you situating your work within the bigger catalytic moments that people and places are experiencing?
Becoming Multisolvers: How are you learning to solve for multiple goals at the same time? What are you doing to work in solidarity with those who are struggling and suffering to expand the conditions that everyone needs to thrive?
Stewardship is not a new idea, nor is it a widespread norm. It is needed now more than ever. As we contend with tangled threats and systemic injustice, people and organizations are increasingly turning—and in many ways returning—to sacred practices for living together that enable all people to thrive. When we amplify stewardship in our daily work, we will set the conditions for well-being and justice to become real for people and places across the country. Join us as we Amplify Stewardship Together.
