Bridging the Opportunity Gap: The Power of Collective Impact
On February 29, 2016 the Corporate Volunteer Council of Atlanta hosted more than 200 civic and business partners to discuss Bridging the Opportunity Gap: The Power of Collective Impact. Facilitated by the CVC and FSG, the group collaborated to collectively come up with solutions to address some of Atlanta’s most crippling issues, which include economic inequality and educational and income disparities.
Keynote speaker Robert Putnam, a political scientist and Malkin Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government, led the conversation and discussed his world-renowned book, “Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis,” which addresses the inequality of opportunity in the United States. Once the discussion concluded, attendees came together with Boston-based consulting group, FSG, to discuss issues that they can address through partnership.
