Networked Nonprofits in Action

Beth and I had the great pleasure of joining wiht our friends at Care2 for a webinar on The Networked Nonprofit. Nearly 800 people joined in as we outlined a few of the major concepts in teh book.

What I enjoyed most about the webinar wasn’t talking but listening to Danielle Brigida of the National Wildlife Federation and Marc Sirkin of Autism Speaks tell us about how their organizations are working as Networked Nonprofits. In Danielle’s case it is about helping her organization break out of their physical and mental fortress that too often keeps organizations at a distance from their communities. She does an amazing job of listening using social media tools. Marc’s organization is newer and the walls are lower, the moat shallower. He still spends a majority of his time building relationships with and growing his network. Marc is doing an amazing job of measuring the results of his community building efforts.

What they’re learning about engaging with communities using social media and the internal politics is really important as we are all trying to better figure out what it means when organizations are stretched beyond their immediate boundaries.

Allyson Kapin of Care2 (and WomenWhoTech a group that I LOVE) has a terrific, comprehensive write up the session here.

Here is the slidedeck from yesterday’s presentation:
