As part of GIIN membership, members have the opportunity to participate in and contribute to one or more thematic workstreams. Workstreams consist of member-driven activities, in-person and virtual convenings, as well as the development of resources on a particular topic or thematic area. Participation in workstreams allows members to highlight their work on the topic, network with relevant peers, exchange lessons learned, and contribute to industry resources.
