Dear IBP Global,

One last reminder about next week's microlearning seminar called Evidence and Action in the Fast Lane. The seminar will focus on evidence use, KM, adaptive management, DHIS2, and strategic planning for learning and impact. The first "episode" will be sent out on Monday, June 4, to registered participants.

If you haven't joined LeaderNet or registered for the seminar yet, please do so soon so that you receive the first episode of the seminar title "Evidence Along a Continuum."

In the message below, there is also a poll on the greatest challenges we face in evidence use. You can vote and see the results in near real time here.
