LEAD FACILITATORS

Merita Irby, Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer, the Forum for Youth Investment
Jennifer Splansky Juster, Director, Collective Impact Forum, FSG

INFORMATION AND REGISTRATION: http://bit.ly/BPA916

EVENT DETAILS

Achieving collective impact requires all partners to clearly understand collaborative work and how partnerships improve conditions in communities. This three-day institute provides a survey of five key steps in collaborative work and how these steps put partnerships on a clear path to improving lives.

The steps are taught as part of a Big Picture Approach that helps community teams create a community-specific diagnosis and action plan, forge better connections to existing work in their community, and maintain an approach to this work that is both holistic and aspirational. This is a “hands-on lab” during which participants will apply the five steps and tools to specific goals in their communities.
