Web of Change:

What is Web of Change?

"Web of Change has become the leading convener of North America's social change and technology community. Our flagship retreat — Web of Change at Hollyhock — connects the senior leaders in this vibrant space for a 4 night intensive retreat, September 23rd — 27th, 2009.

Web of Change provides senior technology and social media leaders with the opportunity to share their world-class work, ideas, and inspiration with a powerful community of deeply committed peers. This is a transformative event that:

  • pushes the edges of technical and campaign innovation

  • models a culture of deep collaboration already present in our sector

  • shares leading organizational change and leadership frameworks

  • all in service to the transformative change our world and our communities so desperately need

Interested? Check out the Registration page for more info. To get on our invite list please send an email to info@webofchange.com."

Note: I will be joining the Web of Change community this year and would love to explore & connect with you there!

What do you think? Do you see a common collaborative force behind these events How would you describe it? What event features or formats stand out as facilitating collaboration? What other like-minded events are happening in this space (like Opportunity Collaboration)? How do we connect the conversations from these events together and spur more of them? (This is something I'm very excited about and looking forward to having more conversations around!)
