‘Walk-in’ Coffee Session

The SP has been implemented for 1.5 years now. The first year of implementation was not easy. Digital collaboration during a COVID pandemic, setting up new partnerships, hiring new colleagues, and finding your way in large alliances with difficult governance structures, while at the same time activities had to be carried out and deadlines had to be met, for example, the annual plans, reports, and baselines.  

Sometimes it feels like you’re running behind the times. Sometimes feels like the best job ever. But how do other colleagues experience being part of such a large international program? 

This Strategic Partnership Lab is an informal Walk in session. Nothing is prepared and during the session, experiences are shared, after which the group itself decides what to talk about. You can participate actively, but you can also listen passively. See you there? 

What are the Strategic Partnerships

The Strategic Partnerships (SP) are the instrument for the cooperation between the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and civil society organisations. The SP is implemented under the ‘Strengthening Civil Society’ policy framework with four grant instruments: Power of Voices, Power of Women, SRHR Partnership Fund and Women, Peace and Security. Under the Strategic Partnerships Lab Partos facilitates learning & innovation for and with the Strategic Partnerships.
