Collective Impact through Network and Systems Leadership
Part Three of the Wallace Center’s Series #CommunityFood: Innovations in Leadership
This webinar will feature promising practices and success stories of collective leadership fostered through alliances, networks, and collaboratives. These organizations embrace and operationalize the fact that together they can achieve much more than they can possibly do alone. We’ll be joined by three cutting-edge networking organizations who link and interconnect food systems leaders and communities to advance good food for all: the Center for Regional Food Systems, Farm to Institution New England, and the Hawaii Good Food Alliance. The presenters will share insights, best practices, and lessons learned from their extensive experience weaving food systems networks in the United States.
This virtual event is hosted by the Wallace Center at Winrock International through their three-part webinar series highlighting innovative organizations that are cultivating transformational leadership at three levels: internally within staff of the organization, structurally at the organizational level, and collectively in partnership with other organizations across communities and regions.
