Over the course of two days of interactive learning, you will develop an in-depth understanding of the phases of a Collective Impact effort; the 4 pillars of success and principles of practice needed to build a solid foundation for Collective Impact to thrive. CI Case Studies and examples will be used to inspire and illustrate the power of the 5 conditions of Collective Impact in Action. Participants will also be introduced to and have a chance to experience an array of facilitation tools that can be used to guide the creation of a robust Theory of Change and action plan. Participants will also be encouraged to share their own experiences, insights and tools to create a rich peer learning experience.

WEBINAR – Introduction to Collective Impact
In this webinar Liz Weaver discusses the 3 pre-conditions of collective impact, and the 5 main conditions of collective impact. She also discusses the phases that one could observe, within a community, throughout the process of this approach.
This paper by Liz Weaver and Mark Cabaj reflects on the first five years of Collective Impact and shares fresh thinking around five ways to build the next iteration of the Collective Impact Framework with their publication Collective Impact 3.0 - An Evolving Framework for Community Change.
This 2-minute video, produced by the Collective Impact Forum, offers a brief overview of Collective Impact and helps to explain why it’s a particularly effective approach for tackling complex social issues.
