Five Good Ideas for building effective relationships between community organizations, governments, and businesses
“We couldn’t do it without you!” “Without strong partners, this couldn’t be done.” We use these phrases because they are at the heart of how we work for social change. Social change does not happen in a vacuum. Agapi Gessesse, Executive Director, CEE Centre for Black Young Professionals, will share her five good ideas on how community organizations, governments, and corporations can create ecosystems where everyone benefits from each other’s work, and advances the social change that we all want to see. She will look at the roles that different actors play and how they can best contribute to a common goal.

Note: Live closed captions available for this webinar.
