Eradicate the Sidelines – Building Bridges through Cross-Sector Collaboration

Like Comment

For over 30 years and in more than 100 countries, PYXERA Global has partnered with companies, social mission-driven organizations, and governments, advising each and implementing programs toward solving complex social problems. We bring the three sectors together in collaboration with one another, leveraging the strengths and differences of each to build resiliency and capability in under-resourced communities.

Today, with the challenges COVID-19 has brought to the world, cross-sector engagements are in even more urgent need and create even more significant value to corporates and their employees, communities and their residents, and governments and their purposes. We are thrilled to share some of the building blocks, principles, and lessons we have learned from our experiences in cross-sector engagement, as well as an illustration of these principles in action through our partnership with 3M.
