Insights - Fenomenal Funds

Learning is an integral part of the Fenomenal Funds model. We embedded a set of practices to support learning throughout the Collaboration Lab process. Using a systematic set of tools and methods, we documented the process and conversations among women’s funds; gathered feedback and reflection; and facilitated a collective sensemaking process. Through this set of practices, we generated insights about what it takes to support the co-creation of feminist collaboration; what it looks like to remain responsive to the experience of participants; and what insights we gain about the needs and priorities of women’s funds. Starting in 2024, we will share lessons and insights that emerged from the process as well as insights coming from the work of the 15 collaboration groups.
