March 2019 Monthly Luncheon TOPIC: Leading a Collaborative Cross-sector Project (1 PDU)

Leading a Collaborative Cross-sector Project

Solving complex problems within a community and finding sustainable large-scale solutions requires a clearly defined goal and the coordination of efforts and resources that span across many sectors and agencies.  Leading a Collaborative Cross-sector Project will outline the skills and attributes that make this work successful, and will draw upon local projects that are now bringing innovative health care models to over 24,000 underserved children annually in our community.   

Learning Objectives 

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify and understand the skills and attributes required to lead a cross-sector collaborative project

  • Reference current collaborative projects in our community addressing children’s health and the processes deployed for success

  • Apply knowledge gained and lessons learned to collaborative projects and learning

Jeanee Weiss Biography:

Over the last 20+ years, I have developed a “kaleidoscope” career that has spanned the sectors of health care, education and nonprofit. Drawing upon my medley of experience and talents, I am now President of ThriveVentures LLC, a consulting agency that supports nonprofit organizations and communities working to ensure all children and families are able to thrive. Through this work, I developed a broad awareness of the child well-being landscape and its intersecting systems; allowing me to help create new multi-sector collaboratives in our community focused on children and families. Today, those collaborative efforts in primary care, oral health care, and vision care are reaching over 24,000 children annually through new, innovative care delivery models.  

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Texas-El Paso in Kinesiology and minored in Education. After a career as a Certified Athletic Trainer, followed by thirteen years in secondary education in Houston, TX and Omaha, I completed my first master’s degree in K-12 Educational Administration, and more recently my Master’s in Business Administration, both from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.  Today, I serve on the Douglas County Board of Health, volunteer as a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters, and lead a support group for NICU parents at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center. I live in Omaha with my husband Eric and seven-year-old daughter Rowen, a second-grader at Crestridge Elementary.
