White Paper Launch

Getting Connected: Using Networks to Build Business Community Resilience in the Blue Mountains‘ is an innovative look at the specific role business community networks (a form of social capital) can play in the before, during and after stages of unexpected disasters.

Combining the results of a survey of local businesses conducted in late 2021 with a review of literature relating to networking and crisis, the White Paper focuses on strengthening connections between local businesses across the Blue Mountains local government area.

 

This White Paper has been developed by:
Renae Hanvin: Founder of corporate2community
Professor Daniel P Aldrich: Global social capital expert
Associate Professor Valerie Ingham: Charles Sturt University
