Partnering for Scale and Impact
Melissa Bradley, Chief Executive Officer, Tides

The focus on scale within the social sector has dramatically increased. However, scale is often hard to achieve due to lack of capacity and capital. Melissa will discuss the importance of partnerships as a means of achieving scale and increasing impact. Leveraging her executive experience in the public, private, and social sectors, she will offer case studies of successful collaborations and critical success factors to maximize impact.
