He's especially interested in learning more about, and advancing, the Foundation's knowledge management practices and its understanding of the systems from which the world's most pressing issues emerge.
Prior to joining the Skoll Foundation, Gurpreet held multiple positions in the Evaluation & Learning and Organizational Effectiveness departments at the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. Although he had worked with a couple of small non-profit organizations beforehand, the Packard Foundation was his first introduction to the complexity of social change efforts worldwide.
