At a story-gathering session, community partners and staff members of the City for All Women Initiative (CAWI) discussed: “What is different about partnership (working with others) that centers the experiences (voices) and decision-making of equity-seeking (justice/fairness) groups?”
The story-sharing and paper quilting which followed highlighted important insights about the qualities and actions central to CAWI’s collaborative leadership approach. Through these activities, the Collaborative Leadership in Practice (CLiP) project was able to listen attentively and document knowledge about this topic directly from the voices of CAWI’s community partners. They were produced as tools for learning in partnership with the CLiP project, and are available on the project website. These stories speak in rich ways and convey the power of community leadership which prioritizes equity and inclusion.
