Collective Impact: A new forum for making change


Collective Impact Forum LogoWe know that the PreventConnect audience loves the idea of collective impact.  In fact, my blog post on collective impact continues to be one of this site’s most popular.  As preventionists, we are, after all, looking to make the strongest impact possible.  We want change!  Lucky for us, the Collective Impact Forum recently launched.  As the site says:

This is the place for those practicing collective impact to find the tools, resources, and advice they need. It’s a network of individuals coming together to share experience and knowledge to accelerate the effectiveness and adoption of collective impact.

Divided into three virtual communities, the site allows you to select the role that is most relevant to you, tailoring resources and assistance to meet your specific needs.  So go forth and explore!  Let’s make the strongest, most effective change possible through our work to prevent sexual and domestic violence.
