Channeling Change: Making Collective Impact Work
March 20, 2012
11:00–noon PT, 2:00–3:00pm ET, 7:00–8:00pm CET
In the winter 2011 issue of Stanford Social Innovation Review, FSG’s John Kania and Mark Kramer introduced the concept of “collective impact” by describing several examples of highly structured collaborative efforts that had achieved substantial impact on a large scale social problem. Response to that article was overwhelming. Since then, hundreds of organizations and individuals from every continent in the world, including the White House, have reached out to FSG to describe their efforts to use collective impact and to ask for guidance on how to implement these principles.
Learn more about implementing collective impact, and hear real stories of collective impact success, drawn from FSG’s follow up article published by SSIR in January, “Channeling Change: Making Collective Impact Work.” Join SSIR editor Eric Nee as he moderates a conversation with FSG’s John Kania, and the leaders of two organizations that have successfully used the collective impact principles: Kat Allen (co-chair, Communities that Care Coalition of Franklin County and the North Quabbin); and Marc Van Ameringen (CEO, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN)). Expect a lively dialogue with time for audience Q&A and debate.
This webinar is recommended for foundation, nonprofit, social entrepreneur, government, and corporate professionals who are interested in learning about a new and effective approach for social change. Please tweet along with us using the hashtag #collectiveimpact
