“It’s not what you know, its who you know.” Social capital is about the value of social networks, bonding similar people and bridging between diverse people, with norms of reciprocity (Dekker and Uslaner 2001). Organizations that improve access to social capital support individuals who may not have access to social networks or relationships that can help them move forward.

The more equitable opportunities there are for organizations and individuals to find the networks they need to help them succeed, the better and more healthy is our economy.
