Abstract: Partnerships are often used to expand program reach. However, serving diverse audiences can require deeper authentic partnerships, in which members of the audience participate in co-designing the program. The program objectives need to fit both partners' missions, needs, and schedules. Building these partnerships requires extended time to build understanding and trust. Panelists describe their experiences developing programs with partners and the characteristics and activities required to build authentic partnerships.
