Social networks are groups of individuals or organizations that are connected through meaningful relationships. In this audio lecture, Heather McLeod Grant explores how to use collaborative practices and networked approaches to further social impact. Speaking about the work of the Monitor Institute, she shares information on tools the organization has developed in conjunction with other organizations, offers case studies to illustrate networked approaches, and provides suggestions to listeners for how to use social networks effectively in the nonprofit arena. McLeod Grant spoke at the Nonprofit Management Institute, an event convened by the Center for Social Innovation’s quarterly publication, the Stanford Social Innovation Review.
