Registration is now open for GEO's Learning Conference 2017.
Learning for improvement is at the center of effective grantmaking. By taking time to reflect on your programs, identify where things are going well and where they can be improved, and fully utilizing data and evaluation as a learning tool, your organization can achieve greater impact and help nonprofits make real and lasting change in people's lives.
But learning can be complex and comes with all-to-common challenges: How can you better learn with your partners and grantees? What does it take to ensure a shared learning mindset inside your organization? How can diversity, equity and inclusion ensure that affected communities are fully represented in all aspects of your learning?
The Learning Conference 2017 offers a range of perspectives and new ideas on learning for continuous improvement. As grantmakers, we want to know if our efforts are making a difference and how we can improve our work over time. Often, we are not getting the most from evaluation, because it is in isolation from grantees, communities and peers, and too few of us are sharing what we're learning, both in our successes and failures. Through a mix of session formats, speakers from inside and outside our sector, structured networking, and informal discussions with peers, participants will explore ways to design and implement evaluation and learning approaches that generate stronger information, decisions and performance.
