What is The Dragonfly Collective?
The Dragonfly Collective is a social business working with others to tackle inequality. We support socially conscious organisations to enhance their social impact and encourage citizens to engage in change. We're for people who are fed up with inequality and who are working to do something about it. Let's make things uncomfortable for the keepers of the status quo.
The most entrenched social challenges of our times will only be solved when people and organisations work together – across sectors, across borders and across cultures (local and global). We know this. But while people and organisations have been collaborating for years in many different forms, there has been less embedding of frameworks that enable collaboration to generate significant impact. Collective impact offers one approach with potential, but how exactly do we make it work here? Our recent research on collective impact in the UK offers some suggestions.
Welcome to 2016! Here’s hoping it’s a year of challenge, imagination and transformation.
Some food for thought to get the year started – here’s an interview with Collaborate where we talk about the messy process of collaborating for change. It’s only by aligning our passions, ideas and resources that we’ll ever achieve the scale of change needed to really tackle inequality in all its forms.
We’d love to hear about your experiences with collaboration.
