The Collective Impact Forum (an initiative of the Aspen Forum for Community Solutions and FSG) & Results for America invite you to attend a panel discussion to celebrate the release of "Community Engagement Matters (Now More Than Ever)," an article co-authored by Melody Barnes and Paul Schmitz, to be published in the Spring issue of the Stanford Social Innovation Review. The article features original research commissioned by Results for America that highlights the importance of engaging community when implementing data-driven, evidence-based approaches and provides a framework for how to do so effectively. Join us for an informative discussion of the paper and conversation with thought-leaders from philanthropy, policy, and advocacy organizations.
