WHAT OTHERS SAY

______________

PCDN is an absolutely indispensable advertising platform for our work at TechChange. The network and its members and extremely influential within the international development arena. Roughly 20% of applicants for our courses have come from PCDN and we’ve seen significant increase of around 15% in traffic to our site. The PCDN team is exceptionally professional and I highly recommend the network to others who are interested in advertising. Nick Martin- President of TechChange

_______________

What I like the most about this network is its diversity. Not one person, institution, or epistemology, ranks above others due to geography. PCDN has kept me informed, allowed me to voice some opinions, and most importantly, has allowed me to carry out two successful job searches in the past two years. The quality and diversity of candidates that applied to work in my department has just been outstanding. Before posting my job advertisement to PCDN, I had a handful of serious applications. PCDN increased the application numbers by more than 400%. The diversity of the candidates allowed me to interview qualified candidates from all over the world, hence reflecting in my department the diversity of our student population at UPEACE. I find PCDN to be an invaluable job search resource. Dr. Victoria Fontan, Associate Professor, Head, Department of Peace and Conflict Studies, University for Peace

PCDN is a crucial tool for any organization seeking to communicate and collaborate directly with the global peace community.  The impact that the International Peace & Security Institute (IPSI) achieved through our trainings and publications in the last year has been multiplied many times over by utilizing the incredible networking power of the PCDN.  No other new technology or social networking site even compares to the PCDN, and we, as the global peacebuilding community, are hugely indebted to PCDN.  Cameron Chisholm, President, IPSI
