• Pre-Conference Workshop: Turn Knowledge into Action – Build a Learning Grantmaking Organization

    The fee for this pre-conference workshop is not included in the main conference registration fees.  Please see below to register.

    Increasingly foundations are looking to become “learning organizations.” This raises several questions. What is a learning organization? What’s the value of becoming a learning organization? How does an organization become a learning organization?

    After discussing and exploring the first two questions together, we will dive into the tactics and structure of becoming a learning organization. We’ll explore the four layers of a “Learning Stack:”

    1) grant data, 2) tools to analyze and methods to make sense of data, 3) knowledge products that share insight, and 4) processes to turn knowledge into action. You’ll leave with the confidence to help drive the learning agenda on grantmaking at your organization.

    By attending this workshop, you will be able to:

    • Clearly articulate the values of becoming a learning organization
    • Structure and analyze existing grants data to increase its value for learning
    • Develop a plan for creating and implementing a Learning Stack within your organization
