Social Transformation Network
For all Professionals Committed to
The Global Trust Exchange
LinkedIn Selected as Preferred Professional Networking Platform
Learning and Development Demonstration Project
The Social Transformation Network is the first project of the Global Trust Exchange (GTX) which is a non-profit organization entirely owned and governed by its member organizations. The GTX is itself a network of equals rather than a new independent entity, and is founded on principles of emergence and mutual trust.
The purpose of the Global Trust Exchange is to both facilitate and make secure the exchange of trust between individuals and organizations. It does this by making the trusted personal networks that connect people and organizations more accessible, more secure, and more useful.
Organizations that participate in the Social Transformation Network are invited, but not required, to take a founding member status in the Global Trust Exchange. Initially this primarily means helping to promote the Social Transformation Network and make it successful.
Working through talented members, the GTX will help design and deliver consulting and training to help organizations more effectively expand and use their extensive trusted networks. (See Demonstration Project below.) The GTX will also take a leadership role in facilitating development of additional trusted network applications that are fully controlled by the organizations and individuals who contribute the content.
To provide a readily available international networking platform, the STN will make use of the LinkedIn platform and network of over 18,000,000 professionals around the world. At the same time, the Global Trust Exchange and STN will remain independent of LinkedIn and are controlled by their members. The GTX will also help coordinate member efforts to integrate their private data and applications with data and services in the more public LinkedIn network.
-- It is by far the largest and fasted growing social network focused on professional applications
-- It instantly enables the many applications and benefits listed here, including special features for groups.
-- It is easy and safe to use.
-- LinkedIn is developing an API platform that can be used to build custom applications that integrate LinkedIn and private data.
For more information on the benefits of using LinkedIn see Benefits, and visit the LinkedIn website.
In addition to using LinkedIn, the GTX and STN will make use of all methods and tools that help their members fulfill their goals, including tools and methods to be developed by the GTX and collectively owned by its members.
Selected founding member organizations are invited to participate in a Demonstration Project designed to provide knowledge, training, and facilitation to help each organization get maximum value from their extended networks of trust, and to prove the value of the Social Transformation Network.
If your social purpose organization is interested in becoming a founding member of the Social Transformation Network and participating in a learning and development demonstration project, please contact Duncan Work, firstname.lastname@example.org.
