Complex decision-making over limited resources, values-based conflicts, or other governance challenges can be complicated, and requires trusting relationships that are best built through open and inclusive dialogue.
That’s why our Stakeholder Engagement processes bring together business, civil society, and government leaders to discuss, share, listen, and cooperate to address issues of common concern respectfully and in context. In this way, stakeholders can resolve conflicts, and agree on actions that are mutually beneficial.
Partners and our Affiliate Centers can draw on expertise across the Partners Network to understand conflict dynamics, define sector-focused or cross-sector initiatives, and identify who, what, when, and how stakeholders can best contribute to effective stakeholder engagement.
