  • Description

In 2013, Equal Measure (then known as the OMG Center for Collaborative Learning) with our client the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, published a series of briefs investigating the key principles of systems change through collective impact strategies, gleaned from a national evaluation of the Foundation's Community Partnerships Portfolio. This brief addresses two questions:

  • Why is building commitment important for place-based investments?
  • How can communities successfully build commitment to a postsecondary change agenda?
