2020 Hindsights: Top 10 Lessons
Publisher: Atlantic Philanthropies
The list that follows is drawn from discussions conducted with Atlantic's former and current staff and board from around the world. Each was asked to give an accounting of Atlantic efforts they believe fell short, why things went wrong, what lessons were learned, and what they'd do differently. For this effort we did not interview any grantees. Keeping our conversations focused internally allowed current and former colleagues to weigh in individually and collectively about how they thought we operated and how they felt in hindsight about decisions they and others made.
