Partnerships is the focus of this edition of WINGS Dispatch. At the UN Special Policy Dialogue in April, Sigrid Kaag characterized partnership as “having a shared vision and agreeing on a way forward.” We agree. After all, that’s what being part of a global network in philanthropy is all about and we’re growing. This month we’re happy to welcome our newest member, China Foundation Center, and our existing membership is in the midst of an intense and productive Events circuit (see below). In this issue we recap the Community Foundations of Canada Conference and a successful transparency and accountability event with AFE in Colombia, and we take a look at Good, Evil, Wicked, the upcoming book based on the ambitious collaboration led by Gayle Peterson and Hilda Vega of Partners4Change. In just nine months WINGSForum 2014 will bring together a diverse group of partners from around the world, and we are inviting you to share your proposals to make it the best WINGSForum yet. Stay tuned to our website and keep in touch—let’s keep our global partnership thriving!
