I work with social justice organizations and B-corps to support the lifeblood of their work: their relationships.  Visualizing a network opens a new process to leverage organizational relationships, build capacity, and unlock untapped assets within your network.  Work with me to undertake this process, at any of the following levels:

Network visualization, evaluation, and strategy: a cycle of transformation

  • Run survey, including snowball sampling
  • Input data into network mapping software such as Gephi or NodeXL
  • Production of network maps, given initial research questions

Example deliverables: usable network map (visualization/snapshot of relationships), benchmarking report for use in strategic networking activities

Network evaluation (builds upon network map)

  • Develop tools for evaluation the network (analytics)
  • Setting up systems for long-term collection of data for evaluation over time
