Networks are powerful tools of social change but are often not used in the most effective ways. The default vision networks often: take the network mission out of the design, puts local entities in the weakest position in a hierarchy of control, places a single organization’s’ well-being over the collective strength of the network. We have witnessed real change when leaders recognize and challenge these default settings, and begin to reimagine a network that cultivates: trust before control, the mission before organization, and distributed leadership before the hierarchy. In this session we will use an example of change the Feeding America network is working on today, and think about how that could be modeled in developing the network you need to affect the social change you want to make.
