What is Social Capital?

Social Capital is the essential currency for success.

Note: Social Capital is NOT Social Media. Social Media like Facebook are channels that can facilitate the creation or destruction of Social Capital

The term Social Capital – is a sociological concept that refers to the invisible, intangible assets that emerge from our social interactions and our relationships. Some examples of these assets are Networks , Norms of Collaboration, Trust, Reputation, and Goodwill. This is a very fragile asset – that takes mindful attention and effort to create. Social Capital can be destroyed by neglect, abuse or lack of use. Social Capital is generated by giving, taking and sharing. It is created by being generous and helpful. People, families and organizations that have richer stocks of Social Capital are more likely to be healthier, wealthier and happier.

Besides enjoying her academic and business activities, Pasricha is an active community leader. She has served as the Chair of the Hockessin Montessori School Board and as a board member of the ACE-Delaware Women in Higher Education, and the YWCA of Delaware. She has been an examiner for the Delaware Quality Award and was one of twenty adults selected nationally to participate in the Teen Women’s Health Policy Summit.

  • Senior Leadership: to increase the number of women in senior leadership positions. In the belief that increasing the number of women in senior leadership positions will lead to more family-friendly workplaces, Vision 2020 no longer separates these two commitments and reduces the number of its national goals from five to four.

  • Voter Mobilization: engage and educate women voters and increase women’s participation in the political process
