Collaboration moves a single social solution up to systematic change. This practice area examines the different collaboration constellations between the social sector and business and government. Critical practices in this area are to be able to identify stakeholders, spot synergies between sectors and then align social missions while involving stakeholders along their strengths. Doing these areas well can lead to improving the outcome for everyone.
Some examples of multi-sector collaboration are collective impact and social impact bonds, where stakeholders from all parts of the social investment ecosystem come together to solve a social issue.
The questions discussed at previous conferences were: How can we leverage corporations for social causes beyond CSR? What practices have worked in the partnering with businesses and governments? In 2016, we plan to expand on this and invite you to contact us if you want to collaborate: firstname.lastname@example.org
