The success of a collective impact initiative is often tied to the success of the partnerships that make up its foundation. What can we learn from other initiatives about their practices related to building and sustaining long-term partnerships with their stakeholders?

Join us on December 6 from 3pm4pm ET for the next Collective Impact Forum Virtual Coffee, Aligning Partners in Collective Impact.

We'll be talking with Marjorie Mayfield Jackson and Joe Rieger from the Elizabeth River Project, a long-running initiative that works collaboratively to restore the Elizabeth River to the highest practical level of environmental quality through government, business and community partnerships.

Date: Thursday, December 6
Time: 3pm - 4:00pm ET
Cost: Free
