About Me
What is a network?
Network: Definition


                                    Networks are collections of
                                    people and organizations
                                    connected to one another.

                                    The glue that holds them
                                    together is relationships– it
                                    is shared interests,
                                    connections, and social
                                    change outcomes.

                                    Online tools can help us
                                    leverage our networks to
                                    make social change.

What is networking?

Connecting the dots …..
Why Should We Network?



                    How can I
                  possibly know
                   everything?
“W.TEC is a Nigerian non-governmental organization working for the economic
and social empowerment of girls and women, using information and
communication technologies (ICTs). We have chosen to focus on this area
because statistical evidence has shown that in most African countries, women’s
use and knowledge of ICTs (to store, share, organize and process information) is
lower than men’s, denying them of income-generating opportunities and the
chance to network with others.”

                                      Craft Your
      Five Minute Exercise:         Twitter Elevator
                                        Speech



 1.   Who are you?
 2.   Why should someone want to connect with you?
 3.   What makes you unique?
 4.   What is the change you want to see in the world?
I am passionate about teaching NGOs to
   use the Internet for social change




                      Photo by Steve Goodman
2003-2005
Told the story of Twitter and the T-Shirts!
Where is the women’s voice in ICT in
            Cambodia?
How is ICT used for gender equality in
             Cambodia?
Why Cambodia?
December, 2011
Don’t think you are too small to make
a difference for women with your ICT
skills …
“If you’ve been in bed with a mosquito,
you know that isn’t true .”
Thank You

Akilah workshop

  • 1. The power of networks, networking, social media, and Women in ICT Beth Kanter May, 2012 Akilah Institute for Women in Kigali, Rwanda
  • 3. What is a network?
  • 4. Network: Definition Networks are collections of people and organizations connected to one another. The glue that holds them together is relationships– it is shared interests, connections, and social change outcomes. Online tools can help us leverage our networks to make social change.

  • 6. Why Should We Network? How can I possibly know everything?
  • 7. “W.TEC is a Nigerian non-governmental organization working for the economic and social empowerment of girls and women, using information and communication technologies (ICTs). We have chosen to focus on this area because statistical evidence has shown that in most African countries, women’s use and knowledge of ICTs (to store, share, organize and process information) is lower than men’s, denying them of income-generating opportunities and the chance to network with others.”

It will hard for them to decide what platforms they need unless they "get their hands dirty."      Also, the wiki training activities are designed to help build the network and learning from each other which support the outcomes.     I just finished a training with Family Planning NGOs in Pakistan, place that has major connectivity issues.  They worked on updating their profiles in the training together in pairs.  By doing it in the room together, we model "social learning" -- one person learns something about the platform and teaches someone else. This helps build a network, improve everyone's skills and reduce dependency. The wiki is a simple shared file cabinet where participants can share their lesson plans, resource guides,  and resources, improving them based on what they learn about instructional design.   The wiki can also be place for participants to keep journals --  have a place to write down and share what they're learning with each other.  This helps with documentation and makes it easy for participants share with one another.  It can also be a place to add notes from Skype calls.   It is important to have "real time voice" for people to talk to each other, hear their voices.   Online communications looses 90% of what is required for good mutual understanding - tone of voice for example.   Only virtual communication can lead to misunderstandings and can pose a problem in building a network.    I realize that a conference call system may be very expensive for the project.  But, SKYPE out into a free conference call platform is very inexpensive, unless any of the countries censor their Internet and the ability to SKYPE out, although there are workarounds.  (BTW, SKYPE video takes a lot more bandwidth than SKYPE audio. But this may be different in your country.)For network building, it is a good idea to have a platform for "just in time" support, interaction, and relationship building -- options are a private FB group or email group. The group can discuss the trade offs.      One of the strengths of using a Facebook group is it encourages networked interactions and helps build habits in these new ways of working.   It can also become a place to celebrate real-time accomplishments, come to each other for advice, connections, referrals, etc - it should be the platform that helps the group builds the ties that are so important in network formation.   I have included in the design some time for training on FB group if we go in that direction.   If they prefer to communicate through email  then we can use the time to cover something else!   I've used private FB groups with newly formed networks even in places where connectivity is a problem.    What is useful about it from a network building perspective, is that during the training when we're all together, we can use it for the exercises and modeling group conversations taking place offline.   See the attached image for examples  from the recent training family planning NGOs from Pakistan about the types of interactions that can take place in a private FB group for a newly forming network. Have them get on the Facebook Group – and document the Me To We exercise Wiki – set up accounts, edit their profiles – edit text, add bold, add hyperlinks, add document (upload), add slide deck Wiki – edit journal page – add image 
  4. Twitter can be an excellent tool for network weaving and professional learning about any topic, but especially social media. The tools make it easy to get “just in time support,” network, connect with different people who have different expertise.

  7. 1.  Why should someone care about your? When possible, leverage an emotional connection.2.  Be distinctive. For example were you the first or only one to do something? Perhaps you are the largest or oldest. These distinctives help set you apart and provide credibility.3. Don’t forget the basics. Who does your organization/endeavor benefit? How does your  organization benefit someone?4. Finish with an ‘ask’ to follow.
