Are Backbone Organizations Eroding the Norms that Make Networks Succeed?

Are Backbone Organizations Eroding the Norms that Make Networks Succeed? | networks and network weaving | Scoop.it
This article challenges a core collective impact model tenet—that networks must be supported by a backbone organization. One danger of backbones is they can inadvertently defuse the grassroots energy that is so central to effective social change.

Relationships: Teacher's "I Need" Box Gets Kids to Ask For Help

Relationships: Teacher's "I Need" Box Gets Kids to Ask For Help | networks and network weaving | Scoop.it

It would be great for networks to have an "I need" section on their website... would be nice to have a little wordpress widget where people could easily post their needs. 

 

 

Julia Brown was determined to get it right this school year, so she tried something new – a cardboard "I Need" box. It began as a way for her students to ask for help without having to come directly to her. They'd write it on a card and leave it in the box, and she'd get back to them before the week was over.

20 ways majority-white nonprofits can build authentic partnerships with organizations led by communities of color

20 ways majority-white nonprofits can build authentic partnerships with organizations led by communities of color | networks and network weaving | Scoop.it
Use your privilege to help partner orgs fulfill their missions: One thing that white allies and majority-white organizations have that many POC and POC-led organizations do not have are connections to funders and donors, as well as a higher level of trust among the public. Use your privilege and influence to help communities-of-color-led organizations:

Introduce communities-of-color-led orgs to your donors, funders, and volunteers: Warm introductions to potential donors, funders, volunteers, and board members are very helpful and much appreciated and demonstrate that you are serious about building authentic partnership. Help set up meetings. Send email introductions. Invite donors to come with you when you attend partners’ events. My organization has monthly meetings with our current donors where we feature the work of one partner organization. It has been not only great for partners, but donors and volunteers are also very appreciative to get to learn about other organizations’ work.  
Highlight the work of communities-of-color-led orgs: This is another great and easy way to be helpful and build strong relationships. Highlight partners’ work in your newsletters, social media, and blog posts. Ask your members and donors to donate to the orgs, attend their events, volunteer, or whatever the organizations may need. Publicly give credit to partner organizations when partnerships go well.
Speak up on issues that affect partner organizations and the communities they serve: Show up for public hearings and provide testimonies on issues affecting partner organizations. Work with them to write op-eds or articles in local publications to highlight the issues they’re working on. Your support and influence may help carry the organizations’ message and reach different audiences.

Social interactions shape individual and collective personality in social spiders

The behavioural composition of a group and the dynamics of social interactions can both influence how social animals work collectively. For example, individuals exhibiting certain behavioural tendencies may have a disproportionately large impact on the group, and so are referred to as keystone individuals, while interactions between individuals can facilitate information transmission about resources. Despite the potential impact of both behavioural composition and interactions on collective behaviour, the relationship between consistent behaviours (also known as personalities) and social interactions remains poorly understood. Here, we use stochastic actor-oriented models to uncover the interdependencies between boldness and social interactions in the social spider Stegodyphus dumicola. We find that boldness has no effect on the likelihood of forming social interactions, but interactions do affect boldness, and lead to an increase in the boldness of the shyer individual. Furthermore, spiders tend to interact with the same individuals as their neighbours. In general, boldness decreases over time, but once an individual's boldness begins to increase, this increase accelerates, suggesting a positive feedback mechanism. These dynamics of interactions and boldness result in skewed boldness distributions of a few bold individuals and many shy individuals, as observed in nature. This group behavioural composition facilitates efficient collective behaviours, such as rapid collective prey attack. Thus, by examining the relationship between behaviour and interactions, we reveal the mechanisms that underlie the emergence of adaptive group composition and collective behaviour.
