A Foundation for Cultural Transformation

The Positive Culture Framework is an approach based on our research about improving health and safety in communities and organizations. The framework builds on shared values, beliefs, and attitudes that already exist in a culture to improve health and safety. It addresses key skills (the how), steps in a process (the what), and the context for doing the work (the where). Learn more about our framework.

Our annual 2.5-day Positive Culture Framework Training provides a foundation for efforts to improve health and safety that address a wide variety of complex social issues. Training attendees:
  • Develop and refine skills in three critical areas: leadership, communication, and the integration of effective strategies
  • Learn how culture influences behavior and how to cultivate cultural transformation
  • Gain specific next steps for transforming culture in your community or organization

The Positive Culture Framework Training is an excellent opportunity to engage with others across the country and move towards cultivating a culture that supports and sustains health and safety.
