Collective Impact Forum (Lessons Learned)
The Collective Impact Conference just happened. This video is a synopsis of the lessons and themes I thought would be useful for nonprofit leadership (especially those interested in nonprofit capacity building and evaluation capacity building). During the conference experts talked about collective impact example initiatives and the importance of storytelling, equity, focusing on useful data, collective impact evaluation, participatory approaches, asset-based framing, and focusing on the future we want to build.
A little background, the collective impact definition (according to the collective impact forum) is a group of people brought together, in a structured way, to achieve social change. The collective impact model or collective impact framework includes a common agenda, shared measurement, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, and a strong backbone. The collective impact convening is an opportunity for coalition partners, coalition leaders, nonprofit organizations, and / or funders to learn from each other. I’m part of a collective impact backbone organization and I attended to hear how other initiatives are using data.
