Agile, interconnected and diverse communities of practice can serve as a hedge on an uncertain world. We currently live in an era of populist politics and diminishing government funding, challenging our collective optimism for the future. However, the communities we build and contribute to can be prepared and strengthened to address the challenges ahead. How we choose to operate in this world of less funding is tied to the collective impacts we all believe we can achieve by working together. How we choose to work together and structure our communities matters.
