About the Author

Chris Thompson joined the staff of the Fund for Our Economic Future in 2007 and spent more than nine years helping its members and partners improve their ability to work together to achieve enduring, positive community change. As director of regional engagement, Chris helped Fund members and civic leaders across Northeast Ohio to design, implement and support multiple cross-sector collaborations that improved job creation, job preparation and job access outcomes. Chris left the Fund in July 2016 to launch a consulting practice, Civic Collaboration Consultants LLC, focused on sharing the Fund's "collaboration know-how" with a broader audience.
