As non-profits face a changing landscape there are many uncertainties. However, when the political winds change, the pieces are in place for a progressive agenda, and dramatic changes in public policy can also provide the impetus to pursue local and regional innovations. One alternative is to come together to achieve greater collective impact around pressing community issues.

Working for Change: Collective Impact


Learn the skills to work collectively with other nonprofits to positively impact your communities! Collective impact brings together organizations from different sectors to collaborate to address specific social problems. Employing the five essential components of Collective Impact leads to significant results: a common agenda, shared efforts, implementation, shared measurements, continuous communication, and backbone support.


At a time of increasing uncertainty, it is important for nonprofits to work together around pressing community issues. In 2011, the Stamford Social Innovator published Channeling Change, Making Collective Impact Work by John Kania and Mark Kramer. Their pivotal work prompted discussions and innovative approaches to the issues facing many of our communities.


Participants will review the collective impact model, how it can be incorporated as part of the strategic planning process and offer organizations the opportunity to explore collaboration from the perspective of achieving more significant impact than by addressing issues in a silo. 


This workshop is co-sponsored with the Connecticut Community Foundation.
