Jointly created by the Children's Funding Project and EdRedesign, this toolkit is designed to equip mayors and their staff with practical information and resources to launch a children’s cabinet in their local community.
EdRedesign has paired research with its support for cities in order to understand what elements enable and accelerate cross-sector collaboration, as well as what challenges impede it. One important finding is that participating in a network like By All Means does indeed substantially strengthen and accelerate each city’s collaborative efforts. Our next phase of this research will focus on the By All means communities’ plans for sustainability, community engagement, use of data, and long-term funding.
This case focuses on Louisville, and centers on the Mayoral point of view, exploring cross-sector collaboration, governance and the changes in Louisville that were made to help support children and families. The case was written in partnership with the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative.
EdRedesign’s engagement with the Partnership for Resilience has enabled us to learn what it takes to successfully bring together education, health, and civic leaders to jointly address shared concerns to advance health equity.
