Why Collective Impact?

Increasingly, community organizations are engaging in collaboration as a means to try and solve some of the most complex issues that they face. But these challenging issues require a new approach, a new framework. In the Winter of 2011, John Kania and Mark Kramer of FSG Social Impact Consultants wrote an article, Collective Impact, that changed how we look at collaboration. Collective impact provides a framework for multi-sector community-based roundtables to re-consider how community change should occur and what impact these efforts should have.

Liz Weaver will lead the group through the key questions collaborative tables need to consider before applying the collective impact framework and share examples, tools and resources participants can use to scale up their collaborative community change efforts.
