The Networked NGO in Kenya- by Beth Kanter
Thank you for your interest in attending the Networked NGO meeting, an event designed to provide an opportunity for organizations to interact and exchange ideas on how to engage effectively.
Many nonprofit organizations have dipped their toes into the set-me-free world powered by social media, but too many still have trepidations about turning their organizations inside out to take full advantage of the new tools. The Networked Nonprofit, a new bestselling book by Beth Kanter and Allison Fine, enables organizations to overcome their fears of losing control and evolve to meet the informational and cultural needs of today’s donors and volunteers.
In their research, the authors discovered that the organizations that are immersed in social media — whether they are created that way or are becoming so — look and act more like social organizations than traditional organizations.
Beth will facilitate a discussion about the myths and realities that make organizations leery of opening themselves up, and they’ll share specific stories of how other organizations have been successful in doing so. We’ll explore how and if this applies to NGOs in Africa and provide some tactical tips.
