Linkando sponsors collaboration platform for the W20 dialogue process on "Gender Equality"
  • Linkando is one of 6 gold partners of the Women 20 (W20) Engagement Group in Argentina 2018.
  • Linkando sponsors a collaboration platform to facilitate dialog and cooperation among the W20 delegates in preparation for the Argentina summit and beyond, ensuring continuity when W20 activities move to Japan in 2019.

Landau, Buenos Aires / September 25, 2018: Since the beginning of 2018, Linkando has worked closely with the Argentinian W20 team to create a digital platform that facilitates dialog and collaboration of up to 300 delegates from the countries of the G20.

W20, an official engagement group of the G20, is an international network that connects civil society organizations, the business sector, associations and think tanks on Gender Equality & Inclusion. Its objective is to influence decision-making groups and the leaders of the G20 to carry out policies towards gender equality, accompanying the goal of advocating for more prosperous and inclusive societies. 

The Linkando platform offers a wide variety of collaboration forms, from private conversations, to group conversations to comprehensive workspaces that promote networking and topical discussion among W20 members. Knowledge and results generated (ideas, experiences, documents) as well as the recommendations that have been elaborated will be preserved when the host country changes. The continuity of the projects will contribute to a more sustainable contribution to the achievement of the G20 objectives.

Susana Balbo, Chair of W20 Argentina 2018, confirms: „Linkando is the perfect platform for us, because it has enabled us to implement a digital ecosystem for cross-border collaboration to carry on our international dialogue process. With the platform we create a legacy as we ensure the continuation of the W20 dialogue process. Our successors and partners can seamlessly tie in with our collaborative work.”

Ilga Gröschel, Managing Director of Linkando adds: „We are happy to support the digital communication and collaboration of the W20 Engagement Group with our platform. In doing so, we make our contribution to the success of the W20 activities and further the continuous engagement around "Women Empowerment.”

The W20 Dialogue Process supported by Linkando comprises an intensive and multi-level dialogue on an international level. The focus topics of the W20 dialogue process are divided up into 4 work groups: Labor Inclusion, Financial Inclusion, Digital Inclusion and Rural Inclusion.
The joint elaboration and formulation of a W20 communiqué and implementation plan are a central task of the W20 dialogue. The aim of the international delegates' cooperation is to integrate different perspectives, experiences and challenges at national, global and digital level, in order to promote the objectives and their implementation in the G20 community of states. These core recommendations of the W20 are currently being drafted with the help of the Linkando Collaboration Platform. The digital dialogue process will be complemented by workshops, conferences and delegates meetings in different countries.
In early October 2018, the current dialogue process will culminate in the presentation of a joint communiqué and implementation plan to the Argentinian government representatives of the G20 in Buenos Aires.

The decisions of the G20 can provide important impulses for binding agreements at the level of the United Nations. For example, the joint elaboration and formulation of the W20 communiqué in Argentina may also influence the United Nations 2030 agenda and their 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular SDG # 5 (Gender Equality) and SDG # 10 (Reduced Inequalities).

Digital Collaboration “Made in Germany“: Linkando presents integrated solution for Crowd Collaboration

- First holistic platform for Crowd Collaboration: Efficient collaboration through simple, intuitive matching, communication, and filing processes

- Make digital impact measurable and transparent

- First reference projects in the fields of business and social affairs

Landau, September 7, 2017 – Linkando, provider of the first Digital Impact platform for Crowd Collaboration, has committed itself to simplify digital collaboration in large communities. For Linkando, the individual user is not only a member of a team, but is an independent actor within the entire community. With its holistic approach, Linkando eliminates data and communication silos in complex organizational structures.

With Linkando, corporations, company networks, associations, project teams or communities - whether in the context of their entrepreneurial activity or social commitment - benefit from a comprehensive collaboration solution that can be flexibly adapted to their requirements and at the same time remain scalable. The platform enables all relevant stakeholders of an ecosystem to digitally integrate and network. With its integrated interaction, management and communication tools, Linkando provides the basis for efficient collaboration. The solution gives an overview of the activities and projects within the community enables the collection of key figures. The integration of all crowd-relevant information and communication channels on a central basis avoids media breaks.

Different areas of application, one solution: Linkando in practice
The first projects implemented with the platform reveal the flexibility of Linkando: 

Channelcrowd: The consulting company channelXperts GmbH operates Channelcrowd, to work closely with its partners and customers and to enable them to network with each other. With Channelcrowd, projects can be optimally managed and customers are given maximum transparency about project progress. In addition, product and project-specific online documentation for the community members is provided quickly and clearly structured.

Seniorenwegbegleiter.de: The non-profit foundation “Lebenswert (e)” has created sendirenwegbegleiter.de, a platform to enable caretakers of senior citizens to network and show their innovative concepts and projects to improve patient care and wellbeing. In addition, institutions, municipalities, non-profit associations, or foundations have the opportunity to present their training courses or concepts to the caregivers.

Flexible Framework: Five functional areas for agile collaboration 
Linkando users benefit from a holistic package which includes all important functional areas for digital collaboration:

“Touch Base“ connects people, organizations and initiatives by interests and abilities. According to these community profiles, agile teams can be assembled with the proactive finder-logic.

In the “Collaboration Room”, dedicated teams or dynamic groups collaborate online. 
Discussion-areas to develop creative ideas and the implementation of projects are in focus here.

In the "Service Mall", the project teams can book and directly receive services from within their own community as well as those external to the community.

In the "Knowledge Hub" knowledge is available to all community members at any time. Here, for example, users can search for documents, blog entries, studies, or videos via intelligent search filters.

Interactive reports in the "Impact Cockpit"provide an overview of the added value and return on investment on projects and help to make the digital impact measurable and transparent.

From practice for practice
The idea for Linkando is based on the experience of the Linkando founding team. Managing Director Volker Wiora explains: "In different companies, we have repeatedly noticed that efficient, digital collaboration often failed even with those with seemingly simple processes. We saw the lack of a consistent platform, empowering agile and structured collaboration. All these experiences led to the creation of Linkando - Made in Germany"
