The Oxfam-Monash Partnership is thrilled to announce the launch of the Futures Series: Building Collaborations for Change. Join us on the 15th of May for one of the year’s most engaging development events.
The development sector is in a period of change, challenging us to think about what we do, how we do it, and how we can improve our efforts.
Around the world, development organisations are increasingly seeing the benefits of co-operation with other agencies and institutions. Indeed, partnerships have multiplied throughout the development sector, often driving vast improvements in the delivery of programs and services. Yet when it comes to the prospect of direct co-operation between major INGOs, there seem to be many challenges that prevent such collaboration. What are these challenges, and how might they be overcome?
There are over 100 Australian NGOs actively engaged in international development efforts today. What if their individual efforts were better co-ordinated and combined? What benefits might we see, and how would our collective impact be enhanced?
As we look to the future, working together better may be the key to achieving the positive global change we’re all actively striving for. Join us as some of the key thinkers and actors in the Australian development sector discuss what the prospect of enhanced collaboration means for the sector, and how we might bring it into our work and organisations.
The discussion will be chaired by Mark Clisby, Chair of the Oxfam-Monash Partnership Governance Committee. Mark is the former Director of Research Services at La Trobe University, prior to which he served as Director of Operations at Oxfam Australia.
