The Cen­ter for the Study of Social Pol­i­cy is host­ing a webi­nar this Wednes­day focused on the core capac­i­ties need­ed to achieve last­ing com­mu­ni­ty change. The webi­nar will focus on lessons from our Mak­ing Con­nec­tions ini­tia­tive and high­light research from our recent report cap­tur­ing local per­spec­tives on the ini­tia­tive and the capac­i­ties com­mu­ni­ties devel­oped that ulti­mate­ly led to improve­ments in sys­tems, pro­grams and the lives of kids and families. 

Dis­cov­er how the Mak­ing Con­nec­tions com­mu­ni­ties increased their capac­i­ty to con­duct results-focused work in terms of devel­op­ing strong local lead­er­ship, sol­id part­ner­ships and shared use of data — and by engag­ing com­mu­ni­ty res­i­dents as deci­sion makers.

The ses­sion will iden­ti­fy the key capac­i­ties com­mu­ni­ties need to be effec­tive in mobi­liz­ing for last­ing change, how these increased capac­i­ties led to changes in out­comes for chil­dren and fam­i­lies and the invest­ments that can help sup­port and strength­en them over time.
