The Collective Impact Forum, a partnership between FSG and the Aspen Institute, is hosting its annual field-wide Collective Impact Convening on May 14-16 at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, IL. This national conference will attract hundreds of funders, backbone leaders, and other collective impact partners. Funders who are currently involved in cross-sector partnerships – or interested in learning more about best practices in collective impact – are invited to attend. Confirmed plenary speakers include Liz Dozier (Chicago Beyond), Efrain Gutierrez (Obama Foundation), Michael McAfee (PolicyLink), Michelle Morales (Mikva Challenge), john a. powell (UC Berkeley Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society), Rye Young (Third Wave Fund), and Tiffany Yu (Diversability). This year’s convening will also feature more than 40 concurrent sessions on topics including community engagement, equity, leadership, use of data, sustainability, and systems change. Funders can participate in a funder-only pre-conference dialogue on Tuesday, May 14, on navigating the funder role in collective impact.
Members of Northern California Grantmakers can use promo code CAG50 during registration, which will take $50 off the three-day funder attendee rate.
