Champions for Change: Leading a Backbone Organization for Collective Impact is a multi-day interactive workshop designed for staff playing the backbone role and steering committee members of collective impact initiatives, demonstrating or working to implement all five conditions of collective impact (common agenda, shared measurement, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, and backbone support).
