Event description

How does Collective Impact work and how do we apply it? 

Join South Australia’s latest Thinker in Residence: Dr Nonie Brennan, and the Don Dunstan Foundation in a discussion on how we can apply collective impact methodology to some of South Australia’s most complex problems.

This discussion is designed for individuals and organisations who are — or have desire to — play a role in a collective impact initiative.

The event will draw actions from Nonie’s experience of bringing together over 90 organisations in the All Chicago Making Homelessness History project.

Come along and learn how collective impact can be used to achieve great outcomes here in South Australia.

*Lunch provided

A bit about Nonie:

Dr Nonie Brennan is formerly the Chief Executive Officer of All Chicago: Making Homelessness History. All Chicago strives to prevent homelessness through a range of actions including, Emergency Financial Assistance, Community Partnerships, Data Collection and Analysis and Training and Research. Dr Brennan is responsible for securing, distributing and monitoring over US$70 million of funding for Chicago’s homelessness system every year. Over Dr Brennan’s time as CEO All Chicago saw a significant increase in funding, with an additional US$1.2 million being won in federal grants in 2016 alone.

In 2016, under the leadership of Dr Nonie Brennan, All Chicago provided US$2.7 million in support to 3185 households, including 1350 children. An astounding 94% of clients maintained their housing and 88% of clients reported that the financial assistance they had gained meant they were no longer in crisis. Dr Brennan’s leadership over the past 15 years has seen an overall 25% reduction in homelessness in Chicago. In 2017 Dr Brennan was appointed as a Senior Advisor by the Institute of Global Homelessness.
