Having a learning culture promotes continuous improvement and supports the achievement of goals, innovation, and the ability to adapt to change. Learning cultures bring benefits for clients, staff, and organizational sustainability. Embracing, fostering, and maintaining a culture of learning within your organization can help you: (1) answer questions about mission alignment and impact, (2) strengthen your programming to better serve clients, (3) promote new ideas and innovation, and (4) improve staff morale and turnover. In this workshop, we will explore the characteristics of a learning culture and how to foster a learning culture within your organization. Participants will understand where their organization is now in developing a learning culture and gain strategies for improving their culture of learning.

ABOUT THE TRAINER
Laura Sundstrom elevates the expertise of the individuals and organizations she works with and those impacted by the work, all in service of strengthening process and impact. With over 10 years of experience in the evaluation and nonprofit fields, Laura brings a broad range of experience and expertise to her perspectives on evaluation and learning. She has worked in the fields of philanthropy, health care, housing, hunger, youth development, and violence prevention to name a few. Laura holds a Bachelor's in Women's and Gender Studies from Beloit College and a Master's in Social Work from the University of Michigan.
Laura brings the curious and humble mindset of a learner to her work. Laura seeks to partner with individuals, organizations, and communities to advance their equity and justice goals, rather than enter as an "expert" seeking to determine what is good or bad. Through these partnerships, Laura is skilled at asking questions that challenge assumptions and spark deeper reflection.
Outside of evaluation, Laura spends her time staying active and enjoying the beautiful hiking Colorado has to offer, practicing yoga and meditation, going on walks, and experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen.
