Practical Network Mapping Tools

Mapping the connections in an advocacy field or network can provide great insights to advocates, evaluators – and to funders who seek to develop a field. Innovation Network (InnoNet) mapped advocacy capacity across Kansas, developing a series of network maps and an advocate database for use by the Kansas Health Foundation as it tried to understand the landscape of grassroots health policy advocacy capacity across Kansas and make funding decisions. Kat Athanasiades, Senior Associate at Innovation Network, spoke about the rationale for using these tools to map advocacy capacity in Kansas, and Elina Alterman, Program Officer at the Kansas Health Foundation, spoke to how and why these tools were useful.
