Resonance is pleased to announce that we will be developing and piloting new training programs on partnerships and impact investment for Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). The training programs will focus on building both the confidence and competence of DFAT professionals. The workshops will be piloted at DFAT HQ and at post in SE Asia later this year with the goal of rolling them out across the Department in 2018.
According to Resonance Managing Director Steve Schmida, “Through tools such as the Business Partnership Platform and the Innovation Exchange, the Australia’s DFAT is rapidly becoming a leader in private sector engagement among bilateral donors. We are very excited to be working with DFAT to develop training programs in partnerships and impact investing that will give their staff the knowledge and skills needed to take their work to new heights.”
Resonance designs and delivers partnership training programs for a wide range of organizations, including the Inter-American Development Bank, USAID, the East African Community, the International Rescue Committee and the Department of State.
