Everywhere we look, there's growing interest in bringing together diverse players, across sectors, to pursue specific, strategic, collective-impact agendas for communities. When experts from different disciplines and perspectives collaborate, they can craft the innovative initiatives needed to move people out of vulnerable circumstances, improve the environment, reduce barriers to opportunity, and more. Naturally, donors and communities are finding these collaborative frameworks among nonprofits more attractive than solo endeavors, resulting in greater support.
High performing nonprofits know how to engage in such strategic partnerships, what goes into a healthy collaboration, and how they can strengthen the ability to effect change and give more to clients. On the other hand, entering into a partnership without addressing roles, expectations, and capacities, or establishing a common ethos, vision, and plan, can harm your brand among stakeholders.
Exclusively for member chief executives, this session will help you to establish and execute these collaborative efforts: how to set a shared vision; clearly define roles and responsibilities; deploy tools, strategies, structures, and processes to manage the relationships; and demonstrate measurable outputs, outcomes, and impacts. We'll also address the bonus that accrues from diverse and inclusive partnerships.
