Session 1: Collaboration and Partnerships: Developing relationships across shared focus areas with other organizations
DATE: MAY 19TH/JUNE 09TH- 1-:2:30PM
FACILITATORS: KAYLA BERNARD/LISA LACHANCE
Collaboration and partnership are vital in the sector to find solutions in a world facing increasingly complex challenges and opportunities. This session will ask how we can amplify the impact of our work, what are the tools and resources required for collaboration, what is the vision or skills needed for collaboration, and how do we elevate collaboration in the midst of all we have to do. This session will focus on developing relationships across organizations with the following focus areas:
- Communication tools/approaches for engaging potential partners
- Partnership agreements (timelines, tools for building partnership agreements)
- Intentional focus on developing partnerships with diverse communities (how to reach out) and within diverse communities
Part of a five-session series
The COVID-19 pandemic and other complexities have changed the context and needs for the social sector.
Back in March 2021, the Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia (CSCNS) partnered with Inspiring Communities (IC) to launch a survey to gather data and information on the needs of the sector. Together, we recognized the need to offer capacity building opportunities based on the current and future context. We also understand that community connection and support are essential, especially during times of crisis; we aim to facilitate such connection while offering meaningful, shared learning opportunities and resources that align with evolving sector needs.
The results from the survey helped identify the sector needs and inform the five capacity building sessions. We invite you to join us for capacity building workshops that will further skill, knowledge and build opportunities for people and organizations to create positive impact across Nova Scotia.
The 2-part capacity building sessions will have an emphasis on building peer-to-peer relationships (cohort learning) and collaborative learning while offering tools and resources to help you implement the learning within your organization or community.
