Some are seeking new delivery partners from both the profit and not for profit sectors. Others are finding ways to build capacity and resilience in communities so that they can do more for themselves. This thematic seminar will consider the leadership challenges associated with this fundamental change in the LA’s relationship with its citizens and share […]
