How can 1+1=3? When two organizations form a partnership, they can utilize not only their own individual resources, but also the new ideas and capabilities which spring from their shared learning. The Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships (S/GP) will recognize public-private partnerships (P3s) that illustrate the best impact of cross-sector collaboration with a new partnership of its own, the P3 Impact Award.
S/GP partners with Concordia and the University of Virginia Darden School Institute for Business in Society (IBiS) to confer the . This builds on S/GP’s collaboration with both institutions during the annual Global Partnerships Week (GPW). The applications are judged by a panel from each organization, and the winner is announced at the Concordia Summit in New York City every fall.
The P3 Impact Award will recognize and honor the leading public-private partnerships that are improving local communities and the world in the most impactful ways. The award will give partnership practitioners the opportunity to reflect on current developments in P3 implementation, as well as the inspiration for further innovation.
