Foundations as Network Leaders: Learning From One Foundation's Journey and Results Part 2

598 views

Published on

July 14, 2016
What does it mean for a foundation to become a facilitative leader? And how can foundation staff make the case for network-based funding approaches to boards and other stakeholders? This two-part series will explore successes and insights from the DentaQuest Foundation’s national systems change strategy Oral Health 2020. Started in 2011, this network-based strategy has achieved notable results—development of oral health leaders across the country, creation of new state partnerships connected to a national health improvement network, and tangible system and policy changes such as the expansion of public benefits in more than 15 states. Come learn about what it took to make this work happen from the perspective of Foundation leaders Brian Souza and Mike Monopoli, initiative evaluator Clare Nolan (Harder+Company Community Research), and network weaver Marianne Hughes (Interaction Institute for Social Change).

Part 2 will dive deeper into what it took to achieve these results, including lessons learned from network building as well as what it means for a foundation to take on a facilitative leadership role.
