Dierdre White, CEO, PYXERA Global Shares Partnership Success Strategies
(Washington, DC) April 26, 2017- “Let’s not think partnership is a new concept. It is how we partner and for what, that is constantly changing,” said Deirdre White, CEO, PYXERA Global, who will address SwitchPoint on creating strategic local engagement and partnerships that lead to lasting impact. “The world’s most pressing challenges cannot be solved by one government, company, or non-profit organization alone.”
SwitchPoint is a conference that convenes creative action-driven collaborators. The 2017 event, convened by IntraHealth International, will take place in Saxapahaw, North Carolina, April 27 and 28.
Deirdre White will also be joined by Matt Clark, Senior Global Engagement Manager at PYXERA Global to lead a partnership workshop. PYXERA Global’s Tri-Sector Partnership Workshop offers participants the tools and context needed to develop viable cross-sector (public, private, social) collaboration. By exploring building blocks, then taking participants through a real-time simulation, the goal of this workshop is to help people move from traditional funder/implementer relationships to true partnerships built around and co-creation of projects, and delivering mutual, meaningful benefit.
For more than 25 years, PYXERA Global has leveraged the unique strengths of corporations, governments, social sector organizations, educational institutions, and individuals to enhance the abilities of people and communities to solve complex problems and attain mutually beneficial goals.
The PYXERA Global team is passionate and dedicated to navigating challenges and pinpointing purposeful global engagement opportunities for its clients and partners. Initiatives include a wide range of services from local content development to global pro bono programs and integrated community development efforts that transform lives and livelihoods.
