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? What kinds of changes and shifts did they have to navigate around? How has their work changed as they reached closer to their goals?

Join us on September 18 from 3pm – 4pm ET for the next Collective Impact Forum Virtual Coffee, How to Sustain Momentum over the Long-term in Collective Impact.

We'll be talking 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.

Date: Tuesday, September 18
Time: 3pm - 4:00pm ET
Cost: Free
