Feedback Summit 2017

November 2-3, 2017


The third annual Feedback Summit focused on the power of connections by exploring feedback loops as tools for responsiveness, accountability, and amplifying impact. As a feedback-focused community, we believe the people know what’s best for them, and that programs and policies should follow their lead in setting priorities and evaluating impact.

At Feedback Summit 2017, we celebrated and interrogated the immense power of constituent-driven feedback loops, and the powerful connections between constituents and other stakeholders that drive forward progress and improvement. Whether it’s collaboration at the organization level, between datasets, or among individuals, we believe that now is the time to learn how organizations can unleash the power of constituent feedback by supporting constituent connection, radically rethinking how constituent voice is utilized – or maybe even by getting out of the way entirely.
