Vanessa Laird

Are you interested in working across government, business and the non-profit sector for public good? Are you wondering how you can create sustainable shared leadership on challenges that can best be addressed together? This course explores multi-sector leadership and related governance and management challenges from a variety of perspectives and provides an opportunity for students to work together to apply what they are learning individually and in teams through in-class exercises and a final team project. The course is taught by a team of interdisciplinary faculty and considers different contexts, forms and specific examples of multisector leadership that can enable transformative action to tackle a significant societal issue and achieve lasting change.
