A Collective Approach to Deliver a Collective Impact

Large-scale change to meet the unprecedented social, resource, business, political and organizational challenges of today requires broad cross-sector coordination. When organizations and leaders from different sectors commit to solving a specific problem through a collective approach, they can make a collective impact that far exceeds the potential of their individual agendas.
