"Power Tools for Coalitions" Webinars
The United States Breastfeeding Committee hosts this series of bi-monthly webinars as part of its training, technical assistance, and capacity building support for the network of breastfeeding coalitions across the United States. Webinars are held every two months (in odd numbered months) on the third Wednesday of the month from 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET.
Access to these webinars is open to all interested breastfeeding coalition members, as well as others involved in forming or leading nonprofit organizations in the breastfeeding field. Topic/speaker details are posted 1-2 weeks before each session on this page and in the Coalitions Learning Connection. The recordings and presentation materials from all past sessions are archived below.
NOTE: To streamline access, these webinars are set up in GotoWebinar as a series. You only need to register for the series once, and you will then receive auto-reminders of each session with the topic/speaker details. Even though you may not be able to attend every webinar session live, the series registration will still send you auto-reminders so that you have easy updates on the topic and links to the live webinar and archives.

Diverse Funding: Building an Engine for Change
Brenda Bandy, Executive Director, Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition
Looking for ways to fund paid staff? Have a great idea but no resources to get started? State breastfeeding coalitions are continually looking for funding to implement programs, build capacity and in general change the landscape of breastfeeding support in their state. If coalitions are the engine of change, then funding sources are the “gears” of the engine. The Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition will discuss how they are building an engine for change one “gear/funder” at a time. The KBC will share practical examples of diverse funding sources for state breastfeeding coalitions and the “oil” that makes it all work - relationships!
