To tackle the world’s most difficult development challenges, nonprofit organizations cannot work alone. Strong partnerships—working relationships with other organizations, businesses, government agencies, or international agencies—are necessary to create sustainable social change. Yet getting different groups of people to agree to a single plan is no simple task: it requires tact, creativity, and skill.
This course provides frameworks, guidelines, and tools to help you establish effective partnerships. From identifying potential partners to signing partnering agreements, you will learn how to navigate the initial stages of the partnering process. Along the way, you will meet expert practitioners, apply practical tools to your own work, and practice your negotiation skills.
This course is suited for individuals working on social impact or development issues who would like to establish partnerships with other organizations, businesses, government agencies, or international agencies.
