Enable your collaborative efforts and collective impact initiatives
More than ever, diverse groups are working collaboratively to address complex social issues. Collective approaches are being embraced and pursued – just a few examples include:
Governments are more eager to integrate the expertise of NGOs into their planning
Social cooperatives are engaging with neighbourhood associations
Indigenous groups are working alongside non-profits finding better ways to move towards reconciliation
These partnerships are exciting, but sometimes daunting, and can require skilled facilitation to build trust and develop a common understanding of issues.
KEM Consulting can lead two or more groups who are embarking on a joint initiative through a facilitated process.
We will employ collective impact theory and collaborative thinking to define common goals and create shared measurement tools. The activities of each organization will be examined to optimize efforts towards success and minimize duplication of work.
Kirsten was an integral component to the successful creation and development of the Lake Winnipeg Indigenous Collective.
Her commitment to our communities’ initiative and her passion for the protection of Lake Winnipeg is exactly what our group needed to keep us focused and on course.
Her attention to detail and ability to adapt to cultural protocol around the lake garnered her respect within our Indigenous Collective.
