KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Robert Acton, JD is Principal and Founder of Cause Strategy Partners "Building High-Impact Cross-Sector Partnerships"
A “go-it-alone” mentality is all too common in the social good sector. Nonprofits organizations aspire to make meaningful impact on pressing and pervasive social challenges, yet too often engage in the mission independent of others, void of collaborators, alone. We know why it happens. Creating and sustaining cross-sector partnerships isn’t easy. Whether based in fears of motivation, scarcity, imbalance or misalignment, social progress is often hindered by an unwillingness to think bigger, extend our reach, and creatively explore bold partnerships that have the potential to result in promising solutions for our cause.
