The best learning happens when we work with peers to tackle the most pressing challenges together.

Remote Learning and Webinars

Engaging Boards and Trustees in Strategic Learning

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.
