Christine Capra is the co-founder of Greater than the Sum, a Social System Mapping firm and co-designer of sumApp, the survey tool for Social System Maps. She helps networks become more effective, deepen their systemic understanding through network visualization, and shift deep mental models about connections and working together. She is also helping to co-generate the broader field of social system mapping through tool-building, writing, training and innovating processes for sense-making, as well as mapping. Christine creates social system maps for a broad range of types and sizes of networks, and works closely with the RE-AMP Network to build, adapt, and innovate sense-making practices with RE-AMP’s Social System Map.
Sarah Ann Shanahan is the Director of Community Management for RE-AMP and has served the Network for over a decade. Her role is to foster the health of the Network by supporting the connections and collaboration of its members. RE-AMP's motto for addressing complex problems is to "Think Systemically and Act Collaboratively." This has inspired her to pioneer a new way for the Network to see, understand, and take wise action for itself through the development of a social systems map (teaser-this will be part of the Academy curriculum). She is an Associate of the Human Systems Dynamics Institute and holds a Bachelors of Science from UW-Madison. A country girl at heart, she enjoys riding her horse (Buckeroos Cowgirl) and singing karaoke!
