Culture Shift: Building Learning Organizations and a Learning Sector
Join us at the Council on Foundations' Leading Together 2019 Conference.
In recent years, a growing number of foundations have worked to transform their institutions into learning organizations equipped with the skills to create, acquire , analyze, and transfer knowledge. What can we learn from those who have intentionally designed their systems and processes to be effective learning organizations? What have they found to be the key ingredients in creating learning cultures? Moreover, what can be done to help the philanthropic field change its insular and independent orientation to become a more open and collaborative one resulting in the creation of a learning sector, one that is transparent about successes and failures and that understands that such shared knowledge will ultimately drive innovation and impact more quickly?
Learn how the new #OpenForGood movement, which is designed to encourage foundations to openly share their knowledge to accelerate the good they want to see in the world, provides resources and tools to help your foundation make the shift. This session will share newly available tools and resources and explore the principles of open knowledge as well as, inspiring examples of foundation leaders who are pushing their institutions to be more open for greater equity and the greater good.
