If you are secretly afraid when you hear the word collaboration, you are not alone. We all have trouble envisioning how to collaborate and how to take steps to actively create successful partnerships. Tackling big global health problems of the twenty-first century requires big ideas, and the combined efforts of many in the field. And just because it’s a good idea, doesn’t mean collaboration is easy. In fact, it can be a big challenge for an organization.
To aid our thinking, we’ve invited health visionary Ambassador Sally Cowal to stop over from her global travels for a talk with Bay Area Health Funders Group. Ambassador Cowal is Senior Vice President of Global Health for the American Cancer Society.
I’ll moderate a conversation where she will share tips from her years of experience collaborating with others on big issues such as cancer and HIV/AIDs
Join us on December 8th, 9:00 am - 10:30 am at Northern California Grantmakers for a special breakfast. Click here to register.
Sally’s experience as a global leader in the field of health offers an opportunity to learn how to “move your mission,” through meaningful collaborative relationships. I hope you’ll join us.
