Attendee Profile: The 2024 Collective Impact Action Summit is a field-wide gathering that will attract a range of attendees, including funders, backbone leaders, collective impact partners, researchers, technical assistance providers, and others interested in collective impact. We anticipate that attendees will have different issue areas of interest (e.g., education, health, economic development, community development) and varying levels of experience in collective impact (e.g., early, mid, late stages).

Guidance for Funders: Funder registration is open to all staff and trustees of grantmaking institutions; staff of philanthropy-supporting infrastructure groups such as regional associations of grantmakers and affinity groups; and staff of academic institutions focused primarily on the study of philanthropy and the practice of giving. All registered funders will have access to attend a funder pre-conference dialogue for no additional charge. 

No Solicitation Policy: The 2024 Collective Impact Action Summit seeks to bring together a wide range of collective impact funders, backbone leaders, and other collective impact practitioners. To maintain the spirit of this unique meeting ground – where funders and other leaders from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors come together as peers – we ask that you respect our "no solicitation" rule. Feel free to discuss the challenges and opportunities of collective impact, ask how other attendees are engaged in collective impact, and ask about what they are learning. However, we kindly ask that you do not ask funders about their funding priorities or pitch your organization/project to them. 

Aspen Institute Community Agreement: When engaging with the Aspen Institute community including through its programming and this Event, you acknowledge and agree to abide by the Institute’s Community Agreement which may be referenced at this link.

Through a mix of session topics, session formats, and a variety of speakers, 2024 Collective Impact Action Summit participants will explore a range of different conference themes:

  • Ground the work in data and context, and target solutions: How efforts can use quantitative and qualitative data to more deeply understand inequities that exist in the community; How an understanding of the historical and current context contributing to inequity can influence an initiative’s work; How initiative can target solutions for specific marginalized populations, based on a deeper understanding of the data and context.
  • Focus on systems change, in addition to programs and services: How collective impact efforts can focused on creating systems change; (e.g., Focusing on changing policy, shifting resources, changing mental models, pursuing narrative change); How systems change and programmatic strategies can be woven together into a collaboratives work
  • Shift power within the collaborative: How collective impact efforts can shift and share power amongst those engaged in the collaboratives work, so those most affected by the core issue are key decision-makers, drivers, and designers of the solutions.
  • Listen to and act with community: How collective impact efforts can act with community members (i.e., families, friends, neighbors) most connected to the topic of the initiative, and how efforts have done this in their work.
  • Build equity leadership and accountability: How collective impact efforts can build leadership skills around embedding equity practices in the collective’s work, and how efforts can maintain equity accountability within their work.

Attendees will come to the 2024 Collective Impact Action Summit from a wide range of issue areas of interest, including:

  • Arts & Culture
  • Community Development
  • Economic Development
  • Education and Youth
