Engage in Continuous Communication

To include members of the community in your coalition is a start, but to empower them to speak their minds and share their stories is something a bit more difficult. The Collective Impact work you’ve done thus far in your READY and SET phases has led to an assembled, diverse coalition. You must engage in continuous communication with your coalition, encouraging open communication, the building of trust, and the sharing of expertise from ALL members. Additionally, community members must be given opportunities to authentically engage not only by sharing, but by learning and receiving opportunities to grow their knowledge base.

Here is a small but growing sample of examples of ways the community has been engaged in Equity Institute team work!
