Collective Impact on Social Mobility

Compared to the national average of 18 percent, a child born in Parramore has just a 2 percent chance of reaching the top fifth of the income distribution. Across the street in College Park the probability of the same economic progress is 28 percent. How can there be so much disparity between two adjacent neighborhoods?

From the ranks of more than 5,000 alumni, two dozen executives stepped forward to pioneer Leadership Orlando 2.0 – The Impact Project to understand the root causes underlying barriers to socio-economic mobility. Their goal includes taking what they learned and applying collective impact as a framework for regional solutions. Tackling such complex challenges requires candid conversations and the activation of the Orlando region’s capacity for collective leadership. Team I reflected a diverse group across industry sectors, gender, race and ideology, all working together to study and understand the critical components of social mobility. Their work is just the beginning and will require the efforts of future teams to produce outcomes that will likely take a generation to be realized.

Team I of Leadership Orlando 2.0 – The Impact Project has cemented its legacy by creating a foresight-fueled collective impact agenda aligned with a model for broad-based prosperity that will empower future leaders. Team I calls for the business community to champion this imperative in each of Orlando’s underserved neighborhoods.
