Tools for Steering Committees
What Is a Steering Committee?
The Steering Committee is a group comprised of cross-sector community partners representative of the relevant ecosystem that provides strategic direction for the Collective Impact initiative and champions its work. Alternative terms for this group include Advisory Group, Advisory Council, and Leadership Table.
How to Use This Toolkit
The following resources are intended to serve as tools for the formation of a Steering Committee. Their development was informed by FSG’s experience working with a variety of organizations. The tools have been generalized to be applicable across contexts; however, because no two collective impact efforts are the same, these resources should be considered a starting place to be tailored to the unique circumstances of each initiative.
