Next steps for the field: Share your collective impact story
To support your collective impact work by sharing real-world examples, research, and tools with the social sector, FSG would like to learn more about your stories of collective impact. Please tell us about your collective impact work via this brief submission form.
The Collective Impact conference fostered a lively dialogue between leading practitioners in the field implementing collective impact efforts, and those who want to learn more about creating, participating in and managing their own cross-sector collective impact initiatives to achieve wide scale social change. Building from our article in SSIR, Collective Impact, the conference comprised a mix of speakers and their stories, panels, table discussions, and plenty of time for Q&A and networking opportunities for those interested in advancing their collective impact efforts.
