Abstract:

This case study of the Chicago Violence Reduction Strategy (VRS) will highlight ways that I-Os can ease the complexities of public-private partnerships and assist in tackling root causes of violence in their communities. This panel features a diverse selection of Chicago community leaders from law enforcement, faith-based community, small business and neighborhood association organizations.

This panel features a diverse selection of Chicago community leaders from law enforcement, faith-based community, small business and neighborhood association organizations. Panelists will describe their experiences and challenges working collaboratively to tackle violence, and will reflect on ways I-O can contribute to such efforts.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the role I-O can fill in community violence reduction
  • Describe the needs and challenges of public-private partnerships and ways that I-O research and practice can address these needs
  • Compare and discuss different leader perspectives on collaborative efforts to reduce violence in communities
