Living Cities will host our fifth and final Twitter Chat on #DisruptingInequality.


Tomorrow, August 19th at 1pm Eastern Time, Living Cities will host our fifth and final Twitter Chat on #DisruptingInequality. The chat, Disrupting the Teams and Score-keeping, will be co-hosted by Tynesia Boyea-Robinson, @tyboyea, our Director of Collective Impact at Living Cities. During the chat, we’ll discuss Collective Impact - What is it? What role does the framework play in disrupting inequality? And how can we apply the principles of Collective Impact in our efforts to improve the lives of low-income people?


We invite you and your organizations to participate in tomorrow’s Twitter Chat. Living Cities will moderate the chat via our Twitter handle, @Living_Cities, and the Hashtag #DisruptingInequality. You can also follow Tynesia with @tyboyea.

Over the course of an hour, we will pose a series of questions about the state of inequality and the role that collective impact plays in disrupting the issue. Participants will have 10 minutes after each question to share their thoughts, feedback, and other relevant information before we move onto the next question. At the conclusion of the hour, all participants will be invited to share their final ideas.
