The Collective Impact Forum invites you to Save the Date: April 27-29, 2021 for the 2021 Collective Impact Virtual Convening.

Spanning three days and featuring over 30 online sessions -- including keynotes, tool sessions, case studies, and short talks -- the 2021 Collective Impact Virtual Convening will share lessons learned from across the social change field, including the role of collective impact initiatives in advancing equitable systems change, centering anti-racist work, contributing to COVID-19 response and rebuilding, and other pressing challenges of our time.

Interested in seeing what's coming at the Virtual Convening?

Highlights of the 2021 Collective Impact Virtual Convening include:

  • Virtual Networking through the event platform, which will allow you to connect with people working on the same issue areas, living in a specific geography, or wrestling with the same questions you have.
  • Breakout Sessions on a variety of conference themes designed for virtual participant engagement, including community engagement, community organizing, data and continuous learning, mental models and narrative change, policy change, and power dynamics.
  • Easy Access to the Virtual Platform integrated with Zoom webinar and meetings. Our team will provide trainings and networking hours on the platform before the event, in order to ensure everyone can use the technology prior to the event.
  • Recordings of most sessions available for attendees to view/download soon after the event. Choose which sessions to join live, and watch those that do not work for your schedule later.

Perspectives from Previous Convening Attendees.

What did attendees share after the 2020 Virtual Convening?

  • “It powerfully presented diverse perspectives virtually and incorporated equity, cross-sector collaboration, and systems thinking in meaningful ways."
  • “It was SOOOOO inspiring to see so many others committed to social justice, and the Convening was presented in the best possible way given the limitations of remote-ness.  It was entertaining; it spoke to my heart.  Boosted my determination to keep doing the work.”
  • “One leaves feeling inspired with tangible tools ready to get back home and get to work.”
