Impact & Results
We've formally trained more than 2,000 public innovators in the Turning Outward approach, while thousands more are using our ideas, frameworks and tools on their own.
The Turning Outward approach has spread globally and through some of the world’s largest nonprofit networks, including AARP, the American Library Association, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Goodwill Industries International and United Way Worldwide.
Public innovators that adopt our approach are transforming the way business gets done in communities. We've helped scores of communities bridge divides and find common ground on complex and sometimes divisive issues.
