DO STEM: Constellation Model
*adapted from the constellation model by Tonya Surman and Mark Surman
The goal of the council is to serve as the organizational support structure of the ecosystem. Committed to the collective impact model, the council will support the ecosystem, ambassadors, and nodes by providing structure and ownership for day-to-day management of the ecosystem and by supporting the ecosystem momentum. This group will help build and maintain the momentum of the ecosystem by organizing convenings, fostering partnerships, and raising awareness. The council is committed to the values of the ecosystem and will rely heavily on open dialogue and will intentionally stay responsive to the evolving needs of the ecosystem.
