SCG members are invited to attend the Collective Impact Forum’s annual 2020 Collective Impact Convening on May 6-8 at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This conference will attract more than 800 funders, backbone leaders, and other collective impact partners from across the globe. 

Funder-specific highlights include:

  • May 6th Funder Pre-Conference: Funders can participate in a funder-only pre-conference dialogue on the morning of Wednesday, May 6. During the pre-conference, attendees will participate in a mix of large group and small group dialogue on the funders’ role in collective impact, including how to evaluate systems change, address power dynamics, and contribute to changing narratives/mindsets.
  • Confirmed funder speakers: During the 3-day convening in Minneapolis, hear from a wide range of funder perspectives, including leaders from Annie E. Casey Foundation, Ford Foundation, Living Cities, McKnight Foundation, Minnesota Council on Foundations, Minnesota Department of Health, New Profit, Trident United Way, and Women’s Foundation of Minnesota.

In addition, overall convening highlights include:

  • Plenary speakers Becky Margiotta (Billons Institute), Trabian Shorters (BMe Community), and a special performance and facilitated discussion on identity and personal narrative with Penumbra Theatre
