Our Collective Work

We have always believed that TOGETHER WE CAN DO BETTER. RMP continues to be a place where people can come together and find common ground.

To that end, we have prioritized four areas where this network is uniquely positioned to engage in collaborative projects that:

  • Are not duplicative of efforts already underway through partner organizations or elsewhere in the region
  • Build on or enhance efforts partners are already working on
  • Fillscritical gaps to support better coordination and cohesion across efforts

How is This Not Duplicating Good Work Underway?

Our dedicated team brings partners doing work in priority areas together so everyone can do their pieces well in a more coordinated way, and also helps to fill the gaps for what is not already in place to meet our goals. Collective work also doesn’t mean the work must be exclusively collective. Although network partners do come together to engage in collective strategies, each partner brings its own role, function, work, resources, expertise, and data to achieve results.
