  • Connecting to Change the World
    Non-profit and philanthropic organizations today need to do more and to do better with less. Increasingly, they are adopting a network-centric approach to their work, building networks of like-minded organizations and people that give them better results than any single organization can accomplish. There are, however, few resources that offer straightforward information and advice on how to create and manage social-impact networks. Drawing on the authors’ deep experience in creating successful network projects, Connecting to Change the World provides the frameworks, practical advice and case studies needed by a new generation of social change agents for creating collaborative solutions to the most difficult challenges society faces.
  • Examples of Health Literacy in Practice
