“We are what we measure.”

– Whole Measures mantra

From August 20-23, IISC is excited to once again partner with the Center for Whole Communities to offer our jointly created workshop “Whole Measures: Transforming Communities by Measuring What Matters Most” at beautiful Knoll Farm in Vermont’s Mad River Valley.  This summer’s offering is meant especially for New England-based and focused food system and food security advocates.  This includes those working from different angles (production, distribution, access, public health) and scales (neighborhood, community, state, region).

IISC and CWC staff are especially excited to be joined by Jeanette Abi-Nader, formerly of the Community Food Security Coalition and co-creator of the tool and publication “Whole Measures for Community Food Systems,” which was designed “to give organizations and communities a collaborative process for defining and expressing their complex stories and the multiple outcomes that emerge from their work.”

The three day experience includes an introduction to the Whole Measures framework as well as a variety of collaborative leadership practices to engage stakeholders in fine-tuning the framework to the particular identity and aspirations of the organization and/or community.
