Cities Reducing Poverty: When Business is Engaged | April 4-6
Ending poverty is everyone’s business. From April 4-6, 2017 we will share in the experience, thought leadership, and success stories to better understand how businesses large and small can be key leaders and contributors to local poverty reduction efforts.
The Cities Reducing Poverty summit will bring together major business leaders with community organizations; mayors and municipal staff; federal and provincial/territorial governments; Indigenous leaders; as well as funders, policy makers, and persons with lived experience to a common space where we will grow our ability to understand and embody true multi-sectoral collaboration to end poverty in Canada.
Vickie Cammack and Al Etmanski have spent the last dozen years studying the field of social innovation to learn more about impact. They have discovered that people with disabilities and their families have a distinct talent for achieving impact. They have “impact-ability” because they are continuously inventing and creating their way out of adversity. Join them for a webinar series where they will discuss impact-ability with seven experienced and inspirational change-makers.
This five-part webinar series will help build your skills for doing Collective Impact work. We have a great line up of speakers who will dive deeper into developing your backbone, getting key people at the table, evaluating your efforts and talk about sustaining your Collective Impact efforts.
This webinar will introduce an integrated set of adaptive learning competencies that are essential for generating effective, collective, community impact. These competencies are: systems thinking, conversational capacity, and 'yes to the mess'.
“I believe that Tamarack is the authority on community engagement and development. The information presented points the way but is not prescriptive, which gives us the power to figure it out ourselves.”
