A Book Discussion of...
Learning and Adapting When Things Go Wrong
Do foundations make mistakes? If so, why do we so seldom hear about them? And if foundations don’t talk freely about their errors, how can they learn from them? Robert Giloth, Vice President of the Center for Family Economic Success at Baltimore’s Annie E. Casey Foundation, has set about to remedy that deficiency by editing, with Colin Austin, a collection of essays entitled Mistakes to Success: Learning and Adapting When Things Go Wrong. Here’s how he describes the purpose of the volume:
The “learning from mistakes” approach was also in the news recently with the courageous launch of a new website by Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Canada, AdmittingFailure.com, as an accompaniment to its annual “Failure Report.”
Giloth, Schambra, Mosher-Williams, Roter, Cohen
The Bradley Center held a discussion with two pioneers of this approach, Robert Giloth and EWB Canada’s George Roter, along with Rick Cohen of the Nonprofit Quarterly and Rachel Mosher-Williams of the Council on Foundations. Bradley Center Director William Schambra moderated the discussion.
