Groups
Creating partnerships for learning across the ANDE community.

ANDE’s groups, including Learning Labs and Action Labs, are neutral convening spaces for diverse practitioners to share best practices and new research, discuss hot topics, and learn from one another. They also offer a venue for joint research or action on key issues.

About Groups
Join a group.

Most groups are members-only, and many are led by members themselves. Each operates with a different timeline and level of engagement. Some groups are global, while chapters lead certain regionally focused groups on topics including metrics, SGB finance, women’s entrepreneurship, talent, and more. Chapter groups may be convened in the local language.

Members signed in to the member portal can join groups to receive updates and personalized recommendations based on your preferences.
