Partnerships for Excellence

Striving for excellence requires both the corporate sector and civil society to transcend organisational and sectoral boundaries and to step out of their comfort zones to learn from what others have to offer. In order to facilitate this need, the International Civil Society Centre has initiated the Partnership for Excellence scheme. A Partner for Excellence supports the Centre and its work for a stronger civil society by contributing know-how and specific corporate expertise and by granting financial support.

Currently, PricewaterhouseCoopers is a Partner for Excellence.
