Join FSG and GEO as we discuss the release of our new toolkit Engaging Boards and Trustees in Strategic Learning. The toolkit provides resources for grantmaker CEOs, evaluation staff and senior leaders to use to engage their boards and trustees in conversations about the importance of strategic learning in their decision-making and deliberation processes. During this webinar, we will explore some of these resources and hear from Hallie Preskill (FSG),
Kevin Walker (Northwest Area Foundation), and Hanh Cao Yu (The California Endowment) who have worked to deepen learning with their boards and trustees.
The Johnson Center for Philanthropy is developing a competency model for program officers, which details the competencies that program officers need to be effective in their work. In November 2018, the GEO Grantmaker Guidebook group hosted a call to review and give feedback on a draft of the model, which helped shape the content and approach to developing current version of the model. Continue to help shape the model by learning about work completed since the last call, reviewing a more complete version of the model, indicating competencies that may have been missed, or adding important considerations that enrich the recommendations. Join us for brief presentation by Michael Pratt and Teri Behrens on this work, followed by a rich group discussion to inform the next iteration of the model.
Hosted in partnership with Philanthropy Northwest, The Learning Conference 2019 is designed to help you make the leap from knowledge to action and to integrate learning into all aspects of your work. This experience will offer you a range of perspectives and new ideas to go beyond the basics and support you in engaging in more intentional learning practices both inside and outside of your organization.
