Making a difference together.
Collective impact is a basic idea that we are all familiar with.
When we work together, we can accomplish more.
Collective impact also refers to an innovative approach that provides a structured framework to mobilize intentional collaborative action to tackle complex social problems. Too often our efforts are fragmented and we end up working in isolated silos. Collective impact offers a strategy to align our resources, leverage our efforts through cross-sectional collaborative action, and maximize our effectiveness.
Promote a culture that fosters relationships, trust, and respect among participants from across sectors.
Build a movement with a
common understanding of the problem and a joint approach to solve it with agreed upon actions and indicators to measure success.
Implement a dynamic process that is centered around community engagement and responsive to feedback and data sharing.
Support mutually reinforcing activities and high-leverage opportunities to maximize impact.
