Building social capital to access opportunities and contribute to our communities

Building social capital to access opportunities and contribute to our communities.

In this webcast, the presenters provide a basic definition for what social capital is - a resource (something you can obtain, use, and invest), a catalyst (something that causes change), and an outcome (with potential benefits to both the individual and the community). Social capital is about the connections people have with others that provide value to all involved. It is also about linking with others in order to build a network, access opportunities and, in turn, contribute to the larger society, through an individual’s talent, creativity, energy, and care.
