Collective Impact Workshop
Applying collective impact principles as we work together

The aim of the workshop is to support the delivery of the future health and wellbeing plan as participants develop their understanding of the collective impact approach and  how we can apply it in our work as separate but aligned organisations working to improve the health and wellbeing of our community.

The workshop is being presented by Sharon Fraser who was the General Manager of Go Goldfields from 2011 -2017 where she led the design and development of a collective impact, place-based approach of social change to improve outcomes for youth, children and families. Sharon also presented our June PRG Workshop on Systems Thinking.
The Collective Impact workshop will include:
  • Introduction to the Collective Impact Approach
  • How the Collective Impact Approach complements Systems Thinking
  • Examples of collective impact approaches from Bendigo and further afield
  • Group activity on how to implement a Collective Impact approach
The Collective Impact workshop will be held Monday 19th July from 12.30pm – 2.30 on Zoom.
