Many companies struggle with measuring how or if their civic engagement efforts are affecting the “root cause” of societal issues. Additionally, many companies may be working on similar initiatives without leveraging the opportunity for strategic collaboration and collective impact. The Collective Impact Forum will: 

  • Candidly discuss the opportunity gap in Georgia
  • Arm participants with the tools needed to leverage collective impact
  • Allow space for cross-sector dialogue and relationship building
  • Offer symposium attendees best practices for immediate implementation in the workplace

We will begin the program with a keynote presentation by Harvard University Professor Robert Putnam, author of Our Kids: An American Dream in Crisis. Following the keynote and Q&A, we will move into smaller groups and for a facilitated session with Foundation Strategy Group (FSG).

We are grateful for the following Atlanta leaders who will help facilitate our workshop with FSG:

  • Ann Cramer, Senior Consultant, Coxe Curry & Associates
  • Alicia Philipp, President, The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta
  • Sharon Hill, Executive Director, Georgia Appleseed Center for Law and Justice
  • Kevin Gooch, Partner, Alston + Bird LLP and President, 100 Black Men’s Emerging 100
