ASO/CBO LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE

Addresses the significantly evolving capacity building needs of ASOs/CBOs resulting from implementation of health care reform, recent biomedical advances, national strategies, and federal/state funding re-alignments by strengthening organizational leadership.

OVERVIEW

The ASO/CBO Leadership Initiative addresses the significantly evolving capacity building needs of ASOs/CBOs resulting from implementation of health care reform, recent biomedical advances, national strategies, and federal/state funding re-alignments by strengthening organizational leadership. The Initiative provides ASO/CBO leaders and boards of directors with opportunities to develop skills to support their organizations in ‘remaining relevant’. Additionally, the ASO/CBO Leadership Initiative promotes the development of the next generation of ASO/CBO leaders and addresses succession planning activities.

APPROACH

The leadership initiative links ASO/CBO leadership around the country using an online portal and in-person activities to encourage leaders to engage with one another, share information and best practices, collaboratively develop strategies and initiatives, and participate in online education and training. The Initiatives include an online learning platform, lunchtime leadership webinars, in-person educational tracks, and mentoring.

The initiative also include a mentor/mentee program that matches emerging leaders with experienced ASO and CBO leaders in their area, an educational track developed with input from the leadership initiative at HealthHIV’s annual SYNChronicity Conference, and monthly webinars on timely topics relevant to ASO/CBO leaders.

HealthHIV launched a six-part, online curriculum for ASO/CBO leaders and managers that addresses concerns identified from Remaining Relevant in the New RealityTM (HealthHIV’s ASO/CBO Capacity Building Initiatives), including presence of leadership at day-long training events and delivering practical tools and resources to promote sustainability and model adaptation.
