Affinity Groups

Learning groups for colleagues in the same profession

In different foundation programs there are key personnel who share a professional common denominator. While each one serves in a different organizational environment, there is great potential for an ongoing professional dialogue between them. Such a shared dialogue will enable them to better conceptualize their work, define mutual professional standards, and weave inter-institutional partnerships.

We therefore decided to convene key individuals, including heads of organizations, leaders of teacher communities and teacher mentors, in order to learn from each other and to promote professional dialogue across organizational lines.
