I’m curious. What are you reading?
At Philanthropy Ohio, we’ve decided that since we are an organization dedicated to helping others learn and engage in effective grantmaking, we should be learning, too. We provide learning and network opportunities for our members, so shouldn’t we engage in activities that stimulate our learning as well?
It’s not as if the world of philanthropy that we, and our members, live in isn’t still a business world that promotes leadership, collective impact, economies of scale, marketing, customer service, measurement, evaluation and other MBA related topics.
So I’ve challenged our staff to help me engender a sense of learning and engagement within our organization. My goal is to create another level of understanding by transferring the “business school” model and finding relevance from the best business minds.
