2022 Innovation Tuesdays
As we pivot from "transformation" to a focus on "innovation," the goal is to honor the relationships created among people being supported and people providing and planning the supports. We want to show – through both live and virtual events – how innovation is created and sustained by using those relationships and shared experiences to make the system more responsive and person-centered. The 2022 Innovation Series provides a variety of formats and styles to meet individual and organizational needs and expectations. It's an opportunity for stakeholders to gather and share ideas, strategies, and practices that will assist them as they move through the systems change process and help improve person-centered planning, community membership, and employment opportunities for individuals across Ohio.
The Innovation Tuesday series starts April 5, 2022, with a virtual launch, and continues the next five weeks with live, in-person regional Innovation Labs featuring stories and examples of how relationships drive innovation locally. The series ends May 17, 2022, with a virtual celebration of some of the best stories and relationships that have allowed innovation to happen across the state, with roundtables and reflections by providers, families, and people being supported.
