In 2011, John Kania and Mark Kramer published an influential article in the Stanford Social Innovation Review on Collective Impact- mapping the conditions for success for not-for-profits, business, government and communities working together to solve problems. Kania and his colleagues at FSG and the Collective Impact Forum have gone on to conduct and publish studies, develop resources and build a community of practice across North America and around the world. In Canada, The Tamarack Institute has been a leader in engaging people in conversations and encouraging collective action.
Pelee works with groups of organizations at every stage of Collective Impact. Our introductory workshops help organizations understand the principles and evaluate their readiness to engage. We're grateful to the Tamarack Institute and the J. W. McConnell Family Foundation, through it's Innoweave initiative, for developing some of the materials and process for the introductory sessions and workshops we offer. We also work with individual collectives as coaches during all stages of collective impact development.
Innoweave (an initiative of the J. W. McConnell Family Foundation) offers comprehensive supports for organizations interested in working collectively. Interested organizations are invited to apply through the McConnell Foundation's Innoweave site, or by contacting us directly.
