Build an overarching leadership council

 

Broader Partnerships 101

After years of working with a wide variety of partnerships at the state and local level, the Forum for Youth Investment has concluded that communities and states need to consider a few basic components of partnerships. This webinar explained about this leadership capacity area and what you can do to build broader, more effective partnerships.

Wednesday, October 26, 2011
Short Description: 
Partnerships and collaborations can take many forms. Whatever the scale of the partnership, effective partnerships are built on clear agreements about the scope of work to be done, the capacity needed to do the work and the mandate or authority in place to ensure that the work is done thoroughly and well.
Scope: 

Introduction to the Ready by 21 Strategies

Specifically, Ready by 21 helps leaders build broader partnerships, set bigger goals, collect and use better data, and take bolder actions. This webinar will guide participants through the essential components of Ready by 21 – the rationale behind Ready by 21, tools and services available to communities and leaders, and the Ready by 21 National Partnership, an unprecedented coalition of organizations representing the government, education, non-profit, business, research and philanthropy sectors.

Engaging Key Stakeholders: Chattanooga Connections

These leaders need to be committed and collaborative in ways that contribute to the overarching mission of the group. This webinar discussed local partnership efforts in Chattanooga, Tenn. and the tools from three Ready by 21 Partners—Corporate Voices for Working Families, United Way Worldwide and the America Association of School Administrators.

Featured Speakers: Linda McReynolds, United Way of Greater Chattanooga and Lesley Scearce, Executive Director of On Point, Chattanooga, Tenn.

Build an overarching leadership council

This is a task force, coalition or committee with a clear governance structure, responsibilities to engage public and private stakeholders, and members that hold each other accountable for carrying out their part of the big picture action plan. The council can be a new entity or an existing one. It can take many forms; only you know what’s best for your community or state.

You can, however, learn from those who have already done it.
