What Happens When You Approach Collaboration with Intention: Part Two
Join partners of the Black Equity Collective and UpMetrics on Tuesday, October 19 at 11 am PST as we discuss top takeaways from their Los Angeles-based community-public-private partnership with Black equity as its center of focus.
You’ll leave this webinar with:
Clarity around how you can be using collaboration with a deep dive into the Black Equity Collective as a use case.
Steps to take to ensure alignment across stakeholders when exploring new initiatives involving multiple partners.
Context around deciding when it is best to pursue a collaborative effort.
The secret to maximizing your impact is collaboration. Shared knowledge, combined data collection and amplified resources empower your impact organization to tackle pressing issues in your community effectively and respond to challenges quickly.
To experience these highly beneficial outcomes of collaboration requires a strategic approach, with all stakeholders entering the situation with firm goals and expectations. This intentionality is more important to success than even the desire of both sides to drive impact when resources are scarce. As Kaci Y. Patterson highlights: “Collaboration needs to be rooted in data with clearly articulated goals and staff that can collect data connecting the dots for all parties and communicating out results. Then all stakeholders have the data needed to make informed decisions together, best utilizing their individual expertise and resources.“
Join Kaci and other partners of the Black Equity Collective in Los Angeles as they discuss the key takeaways that have led to the success of this collective impact effort. The conversation will be facilitated by Stephen Minix, Managing Director at UpMetrics and an active participant engaged across numerous LA-based nonprofits.
