There's a lot of good work happening to improve the health and well-being of residents in different areas of the community, from housing to education to business development. But unfortunately, these efforts are often disconnected and measured in different ways, which means it's hard to really see their impact. When we don't talk to each other and work together, it's tough to figure out what areas need attention most urgently and where we can build on existing successes. I believe in taking a proactive and purpose-driven approach to city-wide collaboration across sectors – education, philanthropy, corporate, small business, and community. Let's start connecting the dots and working toward a shared vision of a strong and thriving city!
No single institution can fix Hartford alone. When unified around a common goal, once-isolated initiatives become collaborative powerhouses.
Bring Together the Different Community and Organizational Stakeholders – to ensure we are communicating and working in partnership on a realistic and integrated picture of a healthy Hartford. Build a culture that encourages everyone to speak openly about creating new initiatives, sharing resources, or even combining different organizations’ initiatives without fear of negative repercussions.
