Alumni Learning Communities

These communities are more participant-driven and offer intentional, collective-impact spaces where alumni who have similar interests and professional goals can gather. Alumni will learn from one another and, when appropriate, a facilitator, around a topic or skill of their choosing.

Alumni Learning Experiences

Alumni learning experiences include conferences, multi-part workshops, and summits that are expert-led to hone specific skills and areas of interest. These experiences may be more lecture-focused, but still seek to offer a space to build community through common interests and fuel collective impact.
