Collective Impact
Workshop 1 (including Youth CI) - National

Workshop for Teams

Innoweave is pleased to offer a National Collective Impact Workshop 1 (including Youth CI).

Collective Impact Workshop 1 is designed to support a team of leaders from the same community (usually representing 4 or more organizations) who have committed to working on a common issue focused and have confirmed the support of a core group of organizations. Collectives will likely have identified their common population-level impact goal, and should be at the early stages of identifying population-level outcomes.

The workshop will help teams of leaders to:

  1. Articulate and refine population level outcome goals that they wish to achieve;
  2. Develop a hypothesis of the activities required to begin achieving those outcomes (e.g. a theory of change);
  3. Identify how they will test (and improve) their theory of change;
  4. Build a community engagement strategy that ensures key stakeholders and other leaders are part of the change process;
  5. Develop a 4-6 month strategy to deepen engagement on the issue, and advance activities to test a collective hypothesis

This online workshop will be delivered in two parts. Part 1 will take place on February 18th, 2015, and Part 2 will take place on April 10th, 2015. Between Parts 1 and 2 in March 2015, each team will arrange a time to discuss their progress with workshop facilitator Sally Fazal. Participating organizations are expected to attend both parts of the workshop.

Following participation in both parts of Workshop 1, teams will be invited to participate in the National Collective Impact Workshop 2, which will take place in the Fall of 2015.

The Innoweave Collective Impact Workshop 1 builds on the Innoweave Introduction to Collective Impact webinar. You are encouraged to view this pre-recorded webinar online prior to submitting your application to the workshop.
