Leaders in the ACEs, trauma, and resilience movement from across the country gathered in Philadelphia to explore and advance the power of cross-sector networks.
In this brief, we highlight two dimensions of network strengthening—engaging new sectors and increasing collaboration—and provide examples of steps taken by MARC 1.0 Initiative sites. We also describe the multi-sector nature of these networks and how this changed over time.
This brief was developed by the MARC evaluation team at Westat—Debra Rog, Tamara Daley, and Nanmathi Manian—in close partnership with the Health Federation of Philadelphia and the MARC Evaluation Work Group—Renée Boynton-Jarrett, Ruben Cantu, Kathryn Evans, Heather Larkin, Geof Morgan, Aditi Srivastav Bussells, and Holly White-Wolfe.
