We hope you will join us for this PACE webinar which will feature a new Knight Foundation and Monitor Institute report that explores how an increasingly connected world–where social networks are proliferating on and off-line–will affect the way people push for social change.

Connected Citizens: The Power, Peril and Potential of Networks, draws from more than 70 rich examples of how networks are being used to build better and more engaged communities. Together these networks have pushed for open government, cared for the elderly, assisted disaster victims and more. You’ll hear from the report’s authors and a leader creating change in her community through networks.

Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE-Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement, will moderate the webinar.

Our speakers will be:

Paula Ellis, Vice President for Strategic Initiatives at Knight and a PACE board member. A member of the Knight Foundation’s Executive Committee, she oversees national programs and new initiatives and is responsible for developing and gauging the impact of the foundation’s overall strategy.

Diana Scearce, the report’s author, works out of Monitor Institute’s San Francisco office and has over a decade of consulting experience as a strategist across sectors. Her practice focuses on helping social change organizations, networks and multi-stakeholder groups increase their impact through collective action.

Dana Jackson is the executive director of Making Connections Louisville. Making Connections is an initiative that has at its center improving outcomes for some of the nation’s most vulnerable children.
