Publication date: 
Thursday, October 26, 2017

Over the past nine months, the Center for Collective Wisdom has worked with SCG members the California Community Foundation, The California Endowment, First 5 LA, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation and a broad group of stakeholders to explore the potential for nurturing and deepening systems change efforts in Los Angeles County focused on trauma and resiliency. During this time, we have also researched relevant system change efforts from across the country, analyzed a wide range of resources related to trauma and resiliency, and engaged in conversations with senior leaders and others from systems across the county to gauge resonance and readiness for systems-level change to address trauma and promote resiliency.

This report summarizes the results of these dialogues and research, including lessons learned, a developmental framework to guide systems change efforts, and potential strategies for advancing this movement across the county.
