"Collaborative Governance: Multiple Leaders, Multiple Accountabilities"  Kirk Emerson, Professor of Practice in Collaborative Governance, School of Government and Public Policy, University of Arizona.

This talk will discuss leadership and accountability in collaborative governance regimes, drawing on a specific public lands collaboration in southern Arizona. Dr. Emerson will address the practice challenges of designing for and managing multiple leaders in an evolving collaborative system.  She will also explore how to elicit and foster the balancing of the multiple accountabilities of leaders to their own organizations/constituents, collaborative group, own personal and professional interests/values/ethical obligations, and to the public at large.  She will encourage discussion with the seminar participants and sharing of professional experiences and relevant research.
