IAC facilitates collaboration that assists agencies in discussing, understanding and aligning actions on social issues. As needs in the community arise, IAC convenes stakeholders and facilitates their ability to effectively and successfully collaborate. IAC drives effective collaboration by researching and providing evidenced-based, best practice techniques for structuring collective work.
IAC currently facilitates a number of collaborative initiatives:
Quarterly Virtual Convening of Human Service Providers
An opportunity for IAC members to come together to discuss services being provided as well as emerging community issues and trends. The objective is to increase our members’ collective understanding of who does what across the social sector landscape, and build a more holistic understanding across the sector of the priority needs and issues members are seeing. IAC designs and facilitates these sessions.
Nonprofit Alliance of Bermuda
A group of leaders committed to the nonprofit sector who are working together to improve public perception of the collective value of nonprofits. The ultimate goal of the effort is expanded reach, access and outcomes of nonprofits as a collective, so that the beneficiaries of our services experience the maximum impact of our work. The administration of the group is facilitated by IAC. IAC’s facilitative approach for the group utilizes the Collective Impact framework.
Learning Community coming soon!
In collaboration with the Bank of Bermuda Foundation, IAC is developing a Learning Community structure that IAC will pilot with youth development organsiations. A Learning Community is a group of individuals within a common domain of work who regularly convene to share their concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better, with the goal of improving their work.
