The Collective Impact approach to designing and managing multi-sector collaborative initiatives has at is core shared measurement. Defining measures is often something that is new and challenging for the partners involved.

Sharing the lessons learned from Vibrant Communities Canada and other collaborative initiatives, our keynote presenter Liz Weaver provided insights and tools for developing a shared measurement approach. Maureen Gillon, Shine Porirua chairperson and trustee of Social and Civic Policy Institute, brought a New Zealand perspective talking about a practical example of Collective Impact in an education setting.
