When Collective Impact Has an Impact: Implications for Funders
Presented in partnership with Collective Impact Forum

Thursday, October 4 · 10:00am–11:00am (ET)


What do we know about the philanthropic practices that lead to systems and population changes in cross-sector collaboration? This webinar will explore actionable insights gleaned from a recently released a study of 25 collective impact sites around the U.S. and Canada, including evidence about what contributes to achieving meaningful changes at a systems and population level. Robert Albright, Director of Programs with the Collective Impact Forum, will provide an overview of the collective impact approach and share the findings and implications of this recent study, "When Collective Impact Has an Impact.” Webinar attendees will have a chance to reflect on the implications of what was learned in the study, and how these concepts relate to their work.
