New Voice Strategies launched VIVA Teachers ,a new innovation in teacher voice , in September 2010, with the VIVA Idea Exchange for U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Over the next two years, we’ve operated nine VIVA Teacher policy collaborations for ordinary classroom teachers empowering thousands of classroom teachers to apply their real-life experiences to real life school problems. For copies of the VIVA Teacher Reports on topics ranging from time in school, school leadership to principal and teacher evaluation, click here. VIVA Teachers uses social media to connect other interested teachers to the ideas and issues generated in a VIVA Idea Exchange.

In 2012, we partnered with the Center for Women and Business at Bentley College to bring our VIVA Idea Exchange to another critical issue: expanding corporate leadership paths for women. We harness the power of networks and mass collaboration to unleash the wisdom of people with experience and bring their solutions to bear on broader policies in our society. We give individuals a singular way to have significant impact on big, tough issues. Click here to download the Bentley report.
