We are now in an era of partnerships: business is partnering with business, government is working in collaboration with business, and both are working with civil society. In today’s new marketplace of partnerships, the alliances are bigger than ever, the stakes are high, and successful partnerships inspire us to build more partnerships. But what about the challenges? What can be learned from existing partnerships to guide and inform the future?

The U.S. Department of State and The George Washington University School of Business invite you to learn from the ‘thrill of victory’ and the ‘agony of defeat’ that comes from building partnerships at an interactive forum: the event is designed for partnership builders from across government, private sector, philanthropy, academia and civil society. Uncommon Alliances: Real Partnerships - Real Experiences - Real Impacts will be a one-day gathering for the initiated and as-yet-to-be initiated ’partnership builder’ to explore the challenges of creating alliances, talk about techniques for overcoming hurdles, and discover emerging trends in the partnership community.
