This has been a time of massive disruption in all of our lives and work. Those of us who are facilitating and supporting collective impact will have to lead our groups through change. This may involve:

  • Changing the common agenda, intended results, or performance measures
  • Adapting strategies and workplans
  • Assisting partners who are meeting urgent needs or are facing organizational crises
  • Changing your teams, meetings, and communication, including moving to virtual work
  • Working with funders to lift restrictions on grants to focus on urgent needs of community members and organizations

If you have questions about how to manage these changes during this time, we’re here to help.

Join us for a Virtual Office Hour where we will be answering your questions and offering recommendations and resources for what to think about and how to move forward when our work seems to be shifting by the day.

This session will also kick-off a series of weekly office hours every Thursday at 2pm ET from this week through April 23. If you want to join, but can’t make this week, come join us on a future session.

Can't make this session? Feel free to register even if you can’t make it, and we’ll notify you when the recording is up- normally in just a few hours after the live event.

What’s a Virtual Office Hour?

The Virtual Office Hour is a way to respond to the burning questions of collective impact practitioners. This will be a casual Q&A session: no formal presentation, but rather an opportunity to spend the hour answering questions about a specific topic.

Have a question that you’d like answered? Share your questions when you register, and we’ll spend the first part of the hour answering some of these questions, before moving to live Q&A with attendees. We will work through as many of the questions we receive as possible in the hour. 

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

Come join us on March 26! Register now.
