7Maryland Nonprofits can play a catalyst role in defining and advancing a united vision for Maryland. Experience in facilitating conversations with people of diverse backgrounds republican, democrat and independent when asked to draw a picture of the society that they want, everyone draws the SAME PICTURE. While government suffers from dysfunction, nonprofit boardrooms bring together people of different faiths, different politics, and different backgrounds to find collaborative solutions to community problems every day.
We want to make sure they arent doing this in isolation. 7InfluenceQuality of LifeAccountabilityTransformative Change8How do we measure quality of life? GPI is part of that, but there are more indicators that are important to people such as the Happiness Index, Health Outcomes being measured and tracked by the State of Maryland with a major focus on reducing health disparities, and other measures developed by national and Maryland nonprofits such as the Personal Outcomes Measures. Personal Outcomes Measures originally developed for developmental disabilities, mental health and aging fields, but increasingly relevant to all of us. See below.
Increasingly, nonprofits and government (and to some extent businesses) are recognizing that no single organization, and in fact no single sector can do it alone. Collective action is necessary but far to infrequent to create the bold vision for the community that we all want.
Government, business, and nonprofits all contribute to the conditions that can create a better community. Nonprofits play critical role in influencing business and government to work towards creating the advantageous conditions AND the role nonprofits play in creating accountability that the conditions are actually coming to fruition.
