The Collective

January 31 - February 2, 2023

The Collective is SA2020’s signature annual event. Happening January 31 – February 2, 2023, The Collective will host three virtual conversations over three days bringing together national, statewide, and local experts. These conversations will explore how we can leverage the power of a shared community vision to lead community change. The Collective will coincide with SA2020’s online release of the newest community data showing where San Antonio stands on reaching the shared vision. 

Schedule

Day 1 (January 31): Influencing Results-Driven, Data-Informed Public Policy
Data is only as helpful as the critical questions we’re able to ask of it and the change we’re able to then affect. How does a shared vision help us ask the most critical questions? What does the latest community data tell us that’s new? What do we already know that we don’t need more data to prove? How can this information be used to shape public policy that gets us closer to the shared vision?

Day 2 (February 1): Reimagining Philanthropy Toward Systems Change
While institutional philanthropy has increasingly recognized racial inequities, their grant-making continues to reinforce unsustainable power dynamics. What examples exist today of philanthropy that redistributes wealth, builds trust with communities, and ultimately contributes to systems change? How might a shared vision guide this reimagination to reality? Who might be the evaluator of its progress and how?

Day 3 (February 2): Shaping Narratives to Support a Visionary Future
The way we talk about problems shapes how we think about possible solutions. How can a shared vision help us talk about systemic inequities with greater complexity? What is the dominant narrative, for example, about “workforce development”? What does the narrative convey about workers? How might the conversation need to change in order to achieve worker’s rights?

Frequently Asked Questions

The Collective is made up of three virtual conversations, taking place across three days. These will happen around lunchtime (exact schedule to come soon). 

Nope! Ticketholders will have access to the recorded conversations through March 2023. That means you can catch a conversation later if you’re not able to join live or return to it again after The Collective ends.

Once you purchase your ticket, you’ll receive an email with access information for our event platform. This is where the conversations (both live and recorded) can be found.

Tickets are on sale now through Eventbrite. Early bird pricing is available through December 15—enter discount code SA2020EarlyBird for 20% off.

To make our events as accessible as possible, SA2020 offers three ticket options. Each level provides the same access and perks.

  • The Connector level ticket is discounted for folks who are covering the ticket cost out of their own limited funds, including students, underemployed individuals, or those living on a fixed income. 
  • The Sustainer level ticket covers the actual cost per attendee. This ticket is for folks who have the resources to cover this level, or their organization is purchasing or contributing to the cost of their registration.
  • The Multiplier level ticket makes the event more affordable for folks who need it by allowing SA2020 to offer the Connector-level ticket option.
