Cross Sector Dialog and Government Participatory Processes

Sheatufim has been leading public participation processes and managing cross-sector roundtables for the government since 2008

Cross Sector Dialog

Over the last decade, Sheatufim has led a wide variety of cross-sector participation processes in government ministries and public bodies. Sheatufim brings with it deep and long-standing familiarity with participatory processes in government and experience working with senior officials in the Israeli economy and in civil society.

Our experience has taught us that building trust and long-term, professional co-operation are a necessary condition for the promotion of the multi-sector activity needed to deal with social-systemic issues.

Since 2008, Sheatufim has mentored over 40 processes for 11 government ministries, with the participation of senior officials from government, from the business-philanthropic and the civil society sectors, as well as thousands of participants from the public at large. These processes have supported legislation and government decisions, the creation of innovative models of cooperation, the development of inter-organizational infrastructures, entry into new areas of activity and target audiences, and more.

In the arena of cross-sector dialog and public participation, Sheatufim is a unique player, as a participant in civil society in Israel, and as a bridge between the different sectors, based on a belief in the importance of active public participation in order to build trust in government, and to break barriers and prejudices that separate the sectors from each other.

Our mission is to create effective and meaningful participation.
