Centering learning in our work allows us to refresh and recalibrate grantmaking approaches to ensure we are as effective and equitable as possible. However, there are many questions to consider when it comes to sharpening an organization’s learning framework. For example, how is having a learning orientation to grantmaking distinct from monitoring and evaluation? What impact can a learning orientation have on grantmaking in support of immigrant and refugee communities? And how can learning shape grantmaking strategy?  

Join GCIR in a conversation with learning professionals in philanthropy to understand how their distinct approaches to learning impact their approach to grantmaking. Participants will also learn how funders have adjusted their strategies and practices to better support migrant justice.
