How to pitch for GLAM partnerships is a commonly asked question for learning and evaluation. This workshop will include a panel of presenters who will: present their best practices for how to identify a good potential partnership, share the important steps and strategic points for planning and launching a successful pitch, and call out any mistakes to learn from. Following panel presentations participants will be asked to reflect on the shared learning, plan for next steps, and taking action.
- Detailed proposal
How to pitch for GLAM partnerships is a commonly asked question for learning and evaluation and we would like to take the opportunity at the conference to bring a handful of our successful GLAM leaders together to share what they know about it. The proposed workshop will include a panel of presenters who who will provide brief presentations of their process of pitching for GLAM partnerships by focusing on three key points in the context of one or more of their successful partnership pitches. Specifically panelists will present their best practices for how to identify a good potential partnership, important steps and strategic points for planning and launching a successful pitch, and mistakes we can all learn from. Importantly, the panel will have both GLAM Wikimedians as well as institutional partners so that we might capture both the external and internal pitching activities that take place when developing a new partnership.
The workshop process around the panel presentations will include thorough capturing of key elements in the panelists reflections so that participants will be sure to notice key messages through live capturing. Beyond the live capturing of key leader reflections on their process and successful practice the panelists presentations will be followed by capturing of a break-out session dialogue in which participants will reflect in smaller groups to learn about common themes and outliers across strategies for pitching for GLAM-wiki partnerships and plan ways that the shared successful practices can be integrated into their pitching practices and which practices might be a challenge, and how to proceed.
Workshop participants will learn useful strategies for pitching GLAM-Wiki partnerships, tips for issues to avoid in negotiating new partnerships, and discuss ways to integrate the lessons learned into future efforts. All that is shared across the workshop process will be documented in our evaluation portal in our learning pattern library and be shared and developed further at a follow-up workshop at Wikimania in July.
