Learning Communities

Kendall is powered by knowledge, and at the KSA we provide opportunities for our members to deepen their knowledge on a wide range of topics. From our monthly Transportation learning communities, to our large signature events we bring together thought leaders to expand our thinking and push boundaries. As a KSA member, you can get things done that simply cannot be done alone. Our Learning Communities (formerly known as Committees) provide talented individuals a forum to collaborate on meaningful projects that make a real impact in Kendall Square and beyond.
