Forward Thinking Fridays (FTF), created and hosted by CPS's Robyn Baker, features a series of weekly posts on our social media networks and on this page. Every Friday, in conversation with experts in the field and global community members, we envision what we want to see in a more Partnership oriented world, and highlight exciting aspects of Partnership that are already in practice today. FTF includes Instagram content (@partnerism), new educational resources, and monthly Facebook Live events to engage with partners and experts on the subtopics of Forward Thinking Friday themes.

Message from Robyn: “We would LOVE to engage all corners of the CPS community in the re-imagining of the world-as-we-know it into the one we hope for in a post-COVID world. Tune into our Facebook Live sessions at the end of every month to hear new perspectives and share your own, and connect with the movement towards making partnership practices the “new” normal”!
