Leading and “Living” Community-Led Initiatives

Location: Salon A-5 (Lower Level)

United Way works deeply in 10 communities in the Chicago-land area, each with its own distinct ecosystem comprised of a variety of stakeholders and decision makers. For six years, United Way of Metro Chicago has been implementing a community-led collective impact strategy simultaneously in the 10 communities to align the numerous community partners around a common agenda that is authentic to community voice. Don’t miss this workshop by United Way and lead agency, Austin Coming Together, to learn about their efforts to amplify the work of collective impact through place-based initiatives and identify methods of collaboration and authentic partner/stakeholder engagement.

Presented by United Way of Metro Chicago
