Join us on July 17 from 3pm4pm ET for the next Collective Impact Forum Virtual Coffee, Building Leadership Capacity for Collective Impact.

We'll be talking with Ellen Kahler, Executive Director at the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund (VSJF), about their experience helping strengthen leadership skills across their initiative. VSJF serves as the backbone for Vermont Farm to Plate (F2P), a statewide collective impact initiative to strengthen Vermont’s food system.

Date: Tuesday, July 17
Time: 3pm - 4:00pm ET
Cost: Free
