Program Staff Learning Network Meeting: Futurism Part II
September 22nd, 2021
Zoom - information to be emailed
Grantmaker, Philanthropic Advisor
With Covid, anti-democracy movements, extreme weather, and racial reckonings defining our present, the need for systematic long-term thinking is greater than ever. Expanding on the concepts presented to this Network in the Nov 2020 session, Jake Dunagan, Director of the Governance Futures Lab at the Institute for the Future will introduce and lead hands-on exercises with foresight tools to explore the future of philanthropy in a complex and changing world.
Even if you did not attend the Futurism session in 2020, you are welcome to attend this one.
About the Learning Network:
The Learning Network convenes mid to senior level program staff who share elements of a common program staff job description but work across issue areas and types of funding institutions. 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.
To participate in the Learning Network you must meet the following two criteria:
- Have worked in a professional setting for at least 10 years.
- Currently situated in philanthropy at a foundation or grantmaking program as mid to senior level program staff
