This question is running through the mind of Social Innovation Generation (SiG) executive director Tim Draimin this week, as global social innovation leaders gather in Vancouver for the Social Innovation Exchange (SIX) Global Gathering, May 26-30.
Tim spent much of his career working with the social sector â€" notably as founding CEO of Tides Canada Foundation. Now he plans to spend more time focusing on the role that the private sector can play in embracing a social innovation mindset and approach. He would like to see a culture that will enable cross-sector partnerships to move into “high gear.â€
“In principle a lot of people recognize that we have to collaborate more closely. In practice there are bedrock skills and competencies required to manage high quality collaborations towards transformational, innovative partnerships that actually solve tough problems,†he says.
