Event Description

On March 28th at 1pm EDT Katrina (Kate) Pugh is giving a webinar on how we get trust in our knowledge networks and communities of practice. Please sign up here: http://nonprofitwebinars.com/webinar/3282012-recognizing-and-cultivating-trust-the-primary-driver-of-network-impact/
The Knowledge Network (or Community of Practice) is a powerful organizational model for organizations to innovate, coordinate, build capacity, and translate ideas rapidly into action. On November 30, 2011 Kate Pugh of AlignConsulting and Columbia University led a Nonprofit Webinar on “knowledge networks.” We introduced recent research funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and discussed the six behaviors of an enduring network: common objectives, collaborative behavior, working platform, cohesion, generous connectivity, and trust. More than half of all webinar participants were concerned about the levels of trust in their networks, and the resulting compromised collaboration. (See story here.) What builds trust in a network? What erodes it? What can we design into the network — into its structures, relationships, measures — to build trust and trustworthiness? On March 28th, we will look at recent research on the mechanics and science of trust, and look at several case studies of networks where trust translates into volunteerism, innovation, and collaboration. We’ll also revisit each of the 8 network design dimensions with a trust lens.


  • A tale of two networks: What sobering lessons can we take?
  • What does trust look like? What behaviors do we look for? What impacts result?
  • What perspectives on trust have emerged in recent research?
  • What are the dynamics of trust: What builds trust in a network? What erodes trust in a network?
  • How can the eight network design dimensions build or revive trust?
I hope you can join us on March 28th! If you cannot, please keep the link above and listen to the audio and slide recording.

It was great to attend the Web seminar, particularly impressed by the 3 Ps, very helpful thinking and quicker enablers.

I'm sorry about the login challenges!  I learned yesteday that there is a way to "add it to your calendar" but you need to register. Grrrr! Also, they seem to have closed the registration just before the event.

Matthew and Constantinos - I'm so sorry that this happened. It also appeared to happen to another friend. That is horrible. I've asked the organizer what was going on.  The whole thing was recorded, and it is going to be here  http://nonprofitwebinars.com/past_webinars/recognizing-and-cultivat...

I couldn't figure out how to actually attend.

I got the invitation and the calendar entry, but no apparent way to go to the actual webinar.

We will post slides and video of the webinar in our Library after the event, which can be found at: http://nonprofitwebinars.com/webinars/ "

Hi Xiaomi An; yes, Katrinas seminar is on 01:00 am on Thursday Beijing time. (Forgive me for interfering, but I´m used to dealing with the time zones between the US and China).

I am not sure about the Beijing time for the web seminar. Is it 1:00am on Thursday ( March 29 in Beijing)?
