Welcome to elevation

The community innovation network

elevation is a virtual learning network for people interested in creating community innovation. 

The communities we come from can have a profound impact on our opportunities for health, education, housing, employment, social connection, and more.  Where these opportunities are missing or limited, we need creative change to assure that everyone has an opportunity to achieve their full potential.
elevation is a virtual learning network for people interested in creating community innovation. Together we share insights, ideas, training, coaching, and encouragement to help each other become better catalysts for community change.
In elevation we define community innovation as a collaborative process for improving community services and supports. Inside elevation you'll find a set of resources to help you strengthen your skills for leading and supporting community innovation, including:
  • The elevation insights blog, with a growing stream of insights and ideas for innovation across the spectrum of community services and supports.
  • The elevation podcast, featuring conversations with leaders involved in community innovation.
  • Training modules in collaborative leadership and collaborative design, two fundamental skill sets for creating community innovation. 
  • No-cost strategy coaching to help you apply what you are learning in your own setting.
  • Networking opportunities with people who share your interest in creating stronger communities that support opportunity for all.
