Concordia and the Institute for Business in

that the US Secretary of State’s Office of Global Partnerships will become an
organizational partner in the inaugural launch of the P3 Impact Award. The

improving communities around the world. For this award, a P3 refers to any
cross-sector collaboration that features public, private, NGO or nonprofit
organizations addressing societal problems.
“The P3 Impact Award intends to spark a new
generation of partnerships for sustainable and scalable solutions,” said
Natalie Pregibon, Director of P3 Intelligence, Concordia’s research division.
“Similar to the Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships, at Concordia, we
believe that partnerships move us closer to solving the world’s most
intractable problems – and we are thrilled to have them join us in recognizing
today’s leaders in this space.”
“By shedding light on successful partnership
models around the world, we hope that this award will invoke others to promote
change through partnerships,” said Deputy Special Representative Thomas Debass
from the Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships.
“The P3 model is unique in that it highlights
the innovation and value created when partners from various sectors work
together to address global challenges,” said Professor Mary Margaret Frank, an
academic director of IBiS. “Our award intends to highlight leading practices
that are sustainable, scalable, and more impactful than traditional approaches.”

practices and actionable insights from the top applicants will be produced to
serve as a tool to inform future P3s. Award winners will receive a weeklong
