Collective impact initiatives timelines are often directly connected with their outcomes and goals. Longer-term goals that extend 5, 10, 20 years can feel daunting and it can be difficult to keep stakeholders energized around the work. How have initiatives sustained their momentum over the long-term?

In this virtual coffee chat, we talk with leaders from two long-running collective impact efforts, Nicole Angresano from the Milwaukee Teen Pregnancy Initiative and Abby Anderson from the Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance.

This virtual coffee was held on September 18, 2018 from 3pm – 4pm ET.

The Milwaukee Teen Pregnancy Initiative and the Connecticut Juvenile Justice Alliance were two of the 25 sites that participated in the research study When Collective Impact has an Impact. This new study, more than a year in the making, looks at the question of β€œTo what extent and under what conditions does the collective impact approach contribute to systems and population changes?”
