Anti-Corruption Efforts, Civil Society Legitimacy, and Collective Impact
Welcome to episode four of season one of Resilient Conversations, a podcast by PartnersGlobal that explores different facets of individual, organizational, sectoral, and systemic resiliency as it relates to civil society. Today’s episode features my colleague Jeffsky Poincy, a Program Manager at PartnersGlobal. We talked about Partners’ collaborative approach to fighting systemic corruption, the impact of legitimacy on civil society’s ability to fight corruption, and how corruption impacts civil society’s efforts. Originally from Haiti, Jeffsky’s current portfolio at Partners focuses on good governance, anti-corruption, and civil society resiliency in West Africa. Prior to joining Partners, he worked at several notable international organizations and is the Founder of BUSY (or Business-driven Solutions for Youth), a Haitian-based economic development organization whose mission is to promote and foster economic empowerment for marginalized youth in Haiti.
