Leading theory to action
This month, Centre for Peace Advancement Coordinator Amy Zavitz attended the Tamarack Institute led workshop Collective Impact: Leading Theory to Action. This "Train-the-Trainer" workshop explored the theory and principles of success, practical tools to use for Collective Impact initiatives, and how to lead theory to action.

The Centre for Peace Advancement knows that having the right mentors is a crucial element of a startup's success. Once a term, the members of our Mentorship Circle gather to provide support and guidance to our Epp Peace Incubator program participants.
This term, we hosted a 'Curated Mentorship' event. Peace Incubator participants identified an area they needed assistance with and were matched with a mentor who has expertise in that area. The morning was filled with great conversations and innovative approaches to problem solving!
