The Collective Impact Model

Collective impact has been defined as the commitment of a group of important actors from different sectors to a common agenda for solving a specific social problem. Different from collaboration, collective impact initiatives are distinctly different because they involve a centralized infrastructure, a dedicated staff, and a structured process that leads to a common agenda, shared measurement, continuous communication, and mutually reinforcing activities among all participants. This panel will discuss the merits of collective impact and provide samples that are occurring in central Ohio.
