From the first session, I immediately felt the “buzz” that I get when I am around a group of action-oriented, like-minded individuals…It is rare that we get to slow down and appreciate who we are, where we are and where we would like to be.

We sent 9 people from our team to take part in OSF’s Appreciating Change series. Every person expressed that the experience impacted their work—and was sometimes life-changing. We’ve seen marked changes in how these individuals engage with their teams.
The One Shared Future cohort experience…especially the mixed, cross-sector approach…provides a safe space for building important enduring relationships across sectors.
I’m grateful for One Shared Future because it provided us the opportunity to meet new friends and colleagues who are fighting the same battles! We got to… identify ways that we can move together toward better serving our brothers and sisters across the state.
I loved my experience with One Shared Future. The sessions… provided me the time and space to appreciate, engage, and create. My cohort experience has been an enriching one full of new relationships and exciting opportunities and possibilities.
