Connecting for Impact is a new panel discussion series offered by Social Impact Advisors the goal of which is to make space for connection, sharing ideas and professional development for people in the social benefit sector.

Join us for our second panel discussion on May 12 from 12:00-1:15pm EST, where will discuss the collective impact process, what it is like to be a backbone, and lessons learned from the field. Collective impact is defined as a group of organizations working together to address a major challenge by developing an integrated approach that fundamentally improves population -level outcomes in a community. Social Impact Advisors currently provides coaching support to a wide range of Collectives that seek to impact social and environmental change. Collectives often include institutions, nonprofits, public service agencies, and for-profit businesses aligned around a common goal.
