Meet the PSOs: Learning to Listen

The Learning to Listen project has been one of the most challenging and fulfilling projects we’ve ever done. And we have not done it alone. We are part of the Fund for Shared Insight Funders Listening Community of Practice, where all organizations are working on projects designed to engage people with a shared mission in a process of collective learning.
