Collaboration is a vital step to building successful, sustainable programs in our community, but building those partnerships effectively and successfully can be a challenge. The Professional Development Group hosted an informal, peer-learning session based on building impactful partnerships.

Two articles that gave context to the discussion were “A Guide to Forming Effective Partnerships” from Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship and “Partnerships,” an excerpt about partnerships from “The Systems of Service” report, which was published by IBM. This is a summary of ideas developed during “Service Jam,” an online collaboration event with a global audience of 15,000 people from a variety of sectors to share ideas for making the world a better place through service.
