Collective Impact: Creating Large-Scale Social Change

Substantially greater progress could be made in alleviating many of our most serious and complex social problems if nonprofits, governments, businesses, and the public were brought together around a common agenda to create collective impact (see "Collective Impact," Winter 2011 Stanford Social Innovation Review). 

This webinar brings together "Collective Impact" authors John Kania and Mark Kramer of FSG, in conversation with Jeff Edmondson, executive director of the Strive Partnership.  Strive Partnership is a coalition of postsecondary, K-12, business, and nonprofit organizations in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky and is a featured case study in the article. 

Unlike other collaborations such as social networks, collective impact initiatives involve a centralized infrastructure, a dedicated staff, and a structured process that leads to a common agenda, shared measurement, continuous communication, and mutually reinforcing activities among all participants. Collective impact urges the nonprofit sector to move away from isolated impact — a dominant approach that focuses on finding and funding a solution embodied within a single organization.
