How can education funders adapt to this moment? Facilitated by leaders of the Grantmakers for Education Arts Education Impact Group, this session will take a laser focus on education funder practice — creating a space to discuss failure, new opportunities, and transparency in grantmaking that supports all learners and culturally relevant, community-connected schools.
