Today, the world’s most pressing problems require governance solutions that demand the input and action of multiple diverse actors because no one organization has all of the requisite knowledge, power, relationships, or resources to address complex issues that affect many stakeholders.

A conscious focus on how individuals and institutions can facilitate collaborative work is necessary to enhance improved relationships and effective problem-solving. Multi-stakeholder collaboration brings together the concerns of diverse actors including business, government, and civil society in order to form a collaborative network for action.

In concert with OEF, Fred Krawchuk, a highly decorated retired U.S. Army Special Forces Colonel, will lead a discussion on a practical framework for multi-stakeholder collaboration by exploring its five essential elements: Purpose, People, Place, Process, and Practice.

About Fred Krawchuk

Krawchuk is an Olmsted scholar, MacArthur Leadership Award winner, and recipient of the George C. Marshall Fellowship at the U.S. Department of State.
