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.
