Collective Impact

What is Collective Impact?

Collective Impact is a process that intentionally coalesces ideas and approaches, and creates common structures and elements, through an equitable, cyclical operation. A short 4 minute introduction is available here.

Aspire's Collective Impact Work

Guidance documents about Aspire's principles of Collective Impact are coming soon.

​This report takes a look at "boundary spanners", key individuals focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) who play a crucial part in connecting ideas, resources, and stakeholders within and between professional societies to influence and enact change. The NSF INCLUDES Aspire Alliance postulates that synchronizing DEI training and the efforts of these boundary spanners could facilitate multi-society awareness and adoption of evidence-based DEI policies and practices within and between these societies.

Essential Resources

The CI Framework is a document that provides guiding principles of collective impact, ways of assessing whether these principles have been met, and the anticipated impact if the principles have been met successfully.
