Cross-Sector Social Interactions Symposium: Innovative Collaboration for a Complex World
Start Date: 5/29/2014Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 5/30/2014End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description:
Sawyer Business School’s Center for Innovation and Change Leadership is hosting the fourth international symposium on cross-sector social interactions.

The meeting, called “Innovative Collaboration for a Complex World: Reaching Across institutional Divides,” will discuss how today’s businesses, NGOs, and government agencies form partnerships to reach new markets, develop corporate social responsibility initiatives, provide public services, and develop innovative solutions. While collaboration offers many benefits, there are also unique challenges to consider. In many cases, institutions from the developed world interact with low-income communities in developing countries. In these communities, a complex and unstable blend of institutions—local, national, and supranational—coexist side by side.

Symposium participants will consider managing and communicating with diverse teams, how organizations should approach and structure their partnerships, and how can specific innovations stemming from cross-sector social interactions tackle complex problems, among other questions.
