Colorado 2019 Summit -- Promising Practices to Reduce Poverty -- Oct. 19
The Economic Opportunity Poverty Reduction Task Force of the Colorado General Assembly is convening the Colorado 2019 Summit on World Poverty Day, October 19.
The day-long event features keynote speaker Mark Kramer, co- founder and managing director of the non-profit consulting firm FSG. Mr. Kramer is the father of "collective impact," an intriguing approach to collaboration among non-profit, corporate, public and philanthropic organizations who have shared goals and seek to make a real difference in solving complex problems.
Highlights of the Summit include:
- Tour Promising Practices sites
- Release of the Statewide Strategic Plan to Reduce Poverty
- Launch of the Promising Practices website
- "Collective Impact" workshop
- An afternoon forum to discuss Colorado's next steps for becoming more cohesive in this shared agenda.
The Economic Opportunity Poverty Reduction Task Force was created by the Colorado legislature and charged with developing a strategic plan to expand economic opportunities in Colorado with the goal of cutting in half the number of families and children living in poverty by 2019.
A workshop on "Collective Impact" will be lead by Jennifer Splansky, Senior Consultant at FSG to teach us how this nationally popular strategy might work to accomplish our poverty goals in Colorado.
