Working With Multiple Organizations and Communities on Major Systemic Change

Collective Action occurs when many organizations from across sectors come together to achieve complex, systemic and social change. It is courageous, aspirational, and challenging work that needs neutral support and resources to enable progress. Collaborators range from deeply engaged community members to government agencies to nonprofit organizations.

Strengthening an Organization’s Ability To Enhance Collaboration and Culture

An organization is more equipped to collaborate in larger scale efforts when it clearly articulates and aligns its own mission and strategy and supports both through  intentional governance and culture. The Collective Action Lab works with individual organizations to support them in this work.
