Rural organizations can help strengthen their communities through collective impact efforts, but also face hurdles like scarcity of resources, infrastructure and capacity, which presents unique challenges to conceiving of and realizing systems change.

This virtual coffee discussion will explore how rural communities can leverage existing strengths to realize big change, with special guest Deb Halliday (Halliday and Associates) who will be sharing lessons learned from Graduation Matters Montana, an effort that resulted in historically high graduation rates through a network of 58 rural “nested collective impact” initiatives.

Date: March 22, 2017
Time: 3pm - 4pm ET


Virtual Coffee Format: The virtual coffee is set up like a free webinar where you will be able to listen in as the speakers share about what they've learned.

We'll be taking questions in the webinar's "chat box" so pleases bring your questions about what YOU would like to hear about.

Can't make the actual coffee chat time? Registering also means you'll be notified when the coffee chat is uploaded to the Collective Impact Forum resource library.

We hope you will come join the discussion on March 22!
