Employers as Action-aries! Launching Successful Sector Partnerships
Workshop Session 1
Detailed, step by step processes of successfully launching a sector partnership
Sector Partnerships are Collective Impact models in motion. They require a common agenda, shared measurement, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, and a strong and consistent administrative backbone. Strong sector partnerships view problems as opportunities. They provide a setting where employers are "Action-aries" and a place for education, workforce, community agencies, and employers to set their individual agendas aside and work toward the common good. However...we know that reality says collaboration can be challenging and is not for the weak of heart. This workshop will share a step-by-step approach of how to successfully launch new or strengthen existing sector partnerships. Together, participants will begin to resolve their own barriers in bringing employers to table.
