We design and host learning communities to facilitate peer learning and support.

Our Approach

We use our access to content experts, our location, and technology to create robust learning communities. For instance, our Finance Professionals Network (FPN) and Human Resources Network (HRN) have more than 200 nonprofit members combined.

Members actively exchange information and opportunities, saving one another enormous amounts of time and fostering a deep sense of camaraderie. We also convene in person and via webinar for role-specific topics. 

2017 forum topics included:

  • Strategies for Having Workplace Discussions that are Inclusive of our Racial Identities.
  • Rethinking Your Annual Budget
  • Revisiting Leadership Transition: Centering Equity, Sustainability, and Social Change 
  • Performance Reviews: Should Organizations Continue to Use Them?
  • Unconscious Bias in HR Systems
  • Managing Risk in Turbulent Times

FPN/HRN benefits include:

  • An active members-only listserve for peer exchange about on-the-job questions, referrals, and advice
  • Five in-person topical presentations with breakfast included (members of both networks invited to all meetings). Meetings take place on February 1, May 4August 30, October 3, December 13 - all 8:30am - 10:30am pacific time at CompassPoint (unless otherwise noted). *
