This week, Harvard Business School released a new report, Business Aligning for Students: The Promise of Collective Impact. Over a year in the making, the report makes a powerful case for why U.S. businesses should direct their time, talent, and financial resources toward Collective Impact partnerships, and it highlights in detail one example of Collective Impact in action: the partnership that is supported – or “backboned” – by UWSL. The report describes how in Salt Lake – and other communities around the country – Collective Impact partnerships are changing outcomes for entire communities by championing shared goals, aligning resources around them, and measuring success in the same way.
