GRANTMAKERS FOR EFFECTIVE ORGANIZATIONS: The Learning Conference

Despite significant investments in learning and evaluation in recent years, philanthropy continues to struggle to measure its work and use real-time information to improve strategy and results. A priority for grantmakers and our grantees is to create a space to reflect and learn so that our organizations can become more relevant and more effective in achieving our goals. The Learning Conference will offer a range of perspectives and new ideas for participants to go beyond the basics, and think critically about the changes they can make by focusing on learning and evaluation as a tool to generate stronger decisions and performance.
