We develop the skills, knowledge and mindsets needed to do collective impact well. This is a new approach, so there’s no handbook or expert with all the answers. We are learning together as we go.
We create opportunities to learn through doing, from each other and by reflecting on patterns as they emerge. Building the right mindsets, skills and knowledge to work together differently are crucial. Some of the ways we are doing this include:
– Creating learning modules around collective impact in practice that can be disseminated across communities, stakeholders and sectors;
– Enabling communities of practice that include partner communities, national partner organisations, the wider learning network, state and Federal Government, and others; and
– Facilitating a peer to peer support network focused on sharing learnings about how to drive collective impact. As we all accumulate knowledge and experiences, we codify the learning so that we can all learn from each other’s successes and failures and inform our own work in real time, on the ground.
