Beth Kanter has been a visiting scholar with the Packard Foundation’s Organizational Effectiveness program for the past four years. In that time, her expertise in social media for nonprofits has been shared with eager audiences around the globe. Two books, numerous trainings, hundreds of blog posts, and countless conferences later, Beth is now writing the next chapter of her career.
To celebrate Beth’s impact on the nonprofit sector (what we're calling "The Beth Effect"), we are hosting an On Air Google Hangout interview with Beth -- broadcasted live from our headquarters. During the hangout, Beth will be interviewed by fellow NP tech guru, John Kenyon, who will help her look back at the successes, failures, and ah-ha moments of the past four years and look forward to the next.
If you’re interested in viewing the On Air Google Hangout, sign up at bit.ly/18CDKRR.
You can also tweet questions, comments, and good wishes to @DLPFexplore, using #theBetheffect -- before, during, or after the Hangout.
Hope you can join us in celebrating Beth!

There is not a resource that facilitate learning and experimentation from organizations/networks/individuals who want to use networked approaches for social change campaigns – regardless of issue. This journal provides a way to strengthen practitioners skills and adapt to rapid changes. The journal information will be highly practical but based on research and can be immediately applied.
The potential for a larger feedback loop – of organizations and others using the insights and reporting back what they learn is very exciting.
