Framework for Access and Belonging (FAB) Facilitator Training Part 2: The WHAT


Session Dates

Tuesday May 23, 2023 9:00 AM - 12:15 PM - Webinar


 Part I of the training addressed ‘why’ FAB is important and ‘how’ to initiate the process.

During Part 2, the components and tools of the FAB process will be shared and discussed in depth. The training will begin with a review of the initiation of the FAB process and continue with the pre-meeting survey and how FAB Facilitators use the results to plan for team meetings. During the second phase, the meeting phase, FAB Facilitators will utilize the online tools that summarize the survey results to focus the team’s discussion on environmental barriers, strategies for overcoming the barriers, and develop a plan for implementing the agreed upon actions. The session will conclude by discussing options for data collection to monitor the selected strategies and the needed steps for the follow-up meeting. Embedded throughout the second session will be opportunities to use the FAB tools by examining scenarios and discussing possible responses and strategies.
