WCWI Member Networking Opportunities

WCWI Members unite and build connections with wellbeing strategists and people leaders throughout Wisconsin by participating in peer networking and idea-sharing opportunities. Below you will find two ongoing networking opportunities for WCWI Members that are offered on a monthly basis. We hope you, your wellness team members, and leaders join us!

During the member resource group, I noticed the incredible rapport you have with members. Considering the number of people who signed in and how they responded throughout, I felt like it went beyond engagement, more of a sense of camaraderie. You offered people a safe space to be real and they truly respect -what you have to offer and say.

WCWI Member Resource Groups

Join us on the last Thursday of every month to unite with your WCWI Member Community. These live, interactive discussions connect you to trending topics, inventive idea-sharing, and relevant resources to put into action.

The Purpose Brief: Catalyze Wellbeing in Your Organization as Foundational, Strategic, and Systemic

Guest Speakers: Joy Ahern and Crystal Felten of Metropolitan Council

Join Joy Ahern and Crystal Felten of the Metropolitan Council September 29 to learn more around their journey to solidify their employee wellness program, Fit for Life's, purpose and alignment with the greater organizational purpose. You’ll hear about the creation and development process of their “purpose brief”; one of the tools they use to communicate what Fit For Life is all about. Little did they know this tool is a design thinking process and would be a powerful accelerator that helped shape and re-craft their entire narrative in addition to opening doors they never dreamed possible. This journey story will be filled with some familiar speed bumps and pot holes, and how they acted as their own “roadside assistance” to keep moving the work and the mission forward to elevate Fit For Life beyond just programs and events. You’ll hear about the empathic questions they asked to gain greater clarity, see examples of their visual document evolution, and get a taste of using the design thinking process along with free tools to start thinking about how to create a similar message for your program! 

In part two in November, they'll dive deeper into the growth edge of failing, how learning and growing is their super power, and how they've translated many of their learnings into action for their employee wellness program, and continually refine the living and breathing purpose brief document.
