Comm-Unity Encourages Collaboration with New Event Series
Curative, Adage Business and AUT Business School have forged an alliance under the banner of Comm-Unity to answer some of the challenges that community, not for profit and NGO services face, through a series of events that aim to help build capacity by sharing learnings and breaking down silos.
The first event in the Comm-Unity series is aptly titled: Collaboration - The New Black, and will be held at the AUT Business school on Saturday 08 September.
In response to the common struggle to operate on limited budgets, with increased demands; Collaboration, The New Black - seeks to show that collaboration is more than just a trend, but a necessity.
Agnes Ngaera of AUT Business School says, “We hear all too often how organisations struggle to source information, gain participation and shift public perception of an issue; often expending vast sums of money, on things other organisations are also trying to do.”
“Curative, Adage Business and AUT Business School all work with organisations that are experiencing exactly this. But we’ve also been exposed to fantastic examples of successful and productive collaboration.
“So with this first event we want to share examples that show how organisations can pool resources, connect and collaborate for common good, share knowledge to help each other, and build on the services they offer.”
