This webinar provides an introduction to the systems approach and identifies ways in which philanthropy can be a catalyst for change in local communities.
At Funders Together, we are seeing an encouraging trend: thought leaders working to end homelessness are focusing not on the results of individual programs, but rather on a systemic approach that addresses the underlying causes of homelessness. Communities are convening in unprecedented ways. Federal government agencies are working to break down the silos that can get them stuck. Funders are setting aside short-term successes to prioritize sustainable results. And everyone is working together.
In this webinar, we will provide an introduction to the systems approach, which integrates theory, analysis, stakeholder participation, systems mapping, and identification of high-leverage interventions to help communities uncover the dynamics that can get them stuck.
This webinar is part of the Funders Together Learning Series.
