Since the first Managing by Network webinar offered in 2008, the Academy has helped partnership practitioners build skills, apply knowledge, and learn from their peers. 

Our interactive training invites participants to take an active role in webinar discussions and apply course content to their current responsibilities.

We place the needs of our participants first, in curriculum design and scheduling. We invite, listen to and act on informal and formal feedback. We support open communication inside and outside of the classroom.
