Panel of speakers
This panel discussion will cover the principles and components of collective impact, a formal model of collaboration widely taken up in the non-profit and public sectors and identified by ALA’s Center for the Future of Libraries as a trend relevant to libraries and librarians. Participants will learn how libraries are increasingly involved in collective impact and will hear about the experiences of two libraries (Free Library of Philadelphia and Providence Public Library) that are spearheading initiatives as the backbone organization. Presentations will cover the unique attributes libraries bring to collective impact initiatives and practical tips for launching an initiative.
