Summary:

We recently received a grant from the David and Lucile Packard
Foundation to support a project that seeks to maximize the impact of
networks and network strategies on social issues.  As part of the
project, we will partner with network experts, including June Holley
and the Interaction Institute for Social Change, to examine what has
worked to develop network leadership capacity and develop/prototype
tools as well as practice approaches that aim to build the capacity
of:  1.) networks to be more conscious about how to develop leadership
in the network; and 2.) leadership programs to better equip their
participants to effectively utilize network strategies and tools.
