Event Description

How do you build a culture of continuous learning? What makes an organization capable of learning, changing, and improving? Can changing circumstances create opportunities for growth?

Explore ways that you and your organization might become more nimble, flexible, and responsive to change. Join the directors of All Our Kin for a conversation about some of the lessons they have learned over ten years of founding and running a nonprofit organization in New Haven. Hear about challenging situations that forced them to learn, change and grow and which shaped and strengthened All Our Kin in the process. Share your own experiences and thoughts about what makes a learning organization.


Jessica Sager and Janna Wagner have been co-founders and co-directors of All Our Kin for over 10 years. They teach jointly at Yale College and at the Dwight Hall for Social Justice. Jessica is trained as a lawyer, and holds a J.D. from Yale Law School. Janna is an educator with an Ed.M. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Jessica and Janna are active in the community and have received numerous awards for their work on behalf of children and families.

The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
