Session Abstract (150 words): 

Although the Collective Impact framework was created to empower and enable multiple organizations within a geographic region to work together on solving a single huge problem, our organization wondered if it had relevance for our work. We are a large institution, with many silo-ed departments that work on a single mission, for similar outcomes and goals. Our strategic plan called for a unified theory of action and related evaluation design, something we have sorely lacked in the past. We felt that the collective impact framework would provide useful tools and grounding to help us build a culture of and capacity for evaluation. This poster presents the story of our journey during the first year of using collective impact to guide our internal evaluation structure. It will describe how we are using collective impact to build evaluation capacity within our organization.
