Engaging with Industry Partners

9:30  – 10:15 am,  Auditorium

It is a common concern that businesses will choose to collaborate with family support organizations like ours for the sole purpose of selling more products and increasing their bottom line. They are businesses, after all. At the same time, we are organizations often challenged with securing funding to pursue our missions. With this panel discussion, we will come together to achieve transparency about these relationships built on give-and-take. We’ll discuss what we expect from industry partners and learn what they expect from us. We’ll talk about ways we can we actively support each other, and we’ll share practical advice on how to successfully seek and build industry partnerships.
