JLI Fair & Equitable Initiative
JLI is undertaking a process to re-envision its joint learning and knowledge partnerships. The Fair and Equitable Initiative seeks to shift power, resources, and leadership to local, national, and regional levels, by building inclusive and accessible Regional Joint Learning Hubs.
