he last several decades have brought many interesting, new alignments between the public & private sector.  Increasingly, private companies are integrating broader, social ends into their strategic goals, thinking more creatively about how to create new markets by “doing good,” and even integrating practices from the non-profit sector such as more active stakeholder and board engagement.  Conversely, non-profit organizations are becoming savvier than ever with regard to bench-marking, thinking strategically about their mission, and learning how to value and cultivate human capital.  Adding to this trend is the rising number of legal structures and investment tools that actually merge social and business goals such as sustainability indices and benefit corporations.

In this webinar, Amy Gregg (EML’12) & Selena Shilad (EML’12) will provide context on some of the most interesting ways that the public and private sector are aligning.  They will also zero in on six of the best practices that are being leveraged between the two.  Staff and leaders of these organizations will be able to put into motion these concepts, which will enable them reach their constituents, customers, funders, staff, and share-holders in new ways.
