Are you a mid to senior level program staff at a foundation or grantmaking program interested in connecting to, and learning with, your peers? If so, please join the kick-off meeting for Philanthropy Massachusetts’ new network: the Program Staff Learning Network (Learning Network).

The purpose of the Learning Network is to create an ongoing, safe space for mid to senior level program staff to learn together, furthering their professional development alongside their peers. The Learning Network will create opportunities for both co-learning and content-driven learning offered by external providers.
