Building a Culture of Collaboration - Collective Impact Summit 2017

Posted 2 months ago at 12:54 pm

More than ever, we need spaces where diverse perspectives can unite, engage in productive dialogue, and collectively act to solve the complex social issues we face. It is time to offer a more compelling story. A story that challenges the conventional approaches, pushes beyond deep divisions, and doesn't accept fractured communities as the cultural norm. It is time for a story that brings people together on common ground, unifying our diverse identities in terms of race, class, gender and sexuality, religion, geography, political viewpoint, and so much more. A story which, most importantly, leads toward real progress in the quality of life for all of us, especially for those whose well-being is most threatened.

This is why partners from across the U.S. and North America are coming together in Denver for the Collective Impact Summit on November 29 & 30. Join together with The Civic Canopy to bring together nonprofit, business, government, philanthropic partners and community members from across Colorado and beyond to build skills and knowledge around what it takes to ensure healthy, thriving communities.
