The blog this week is by George Martin, President of The Arcadia Institute In his book, The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell identified a distinct group of people he called ‘connector’, people who are important links in chains of communication.
Connectors are people who just seem to be in touch with many other people. They are great conduits for passing along information and bringing people together, if not always physically, then in conversation.
Connectors can be highly important in the lives of people with disabilities as they seek to establish meaningful relationships and become participants in their community.
Who are the people you identify as connectors? How are they part of your conversation chain? How might they become more building community for people with disabilities?
We would like to hear your views.
