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.

PCDN is a fabulous tool, and has generated not only good contacts but several substantive pieces of paid business for our company.  On the grant giving side ( we are a small nonprofit foundation), the results have been phenomenal:  after being listed on PCDN, our response rate for grant applications skyrocketed from 20 to 128.  I am a fan! Dr. Mark Young, President, Rational Games Inc.


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

Our website has also seen an dramatic increase in traffic - according to our web statistics, since the announcement of the Hansen program on PCDN, visits to our web site have increased by 200%.

Tarek Massarini, Program Manager,Salam Institute for Peace and Justice


My numbers were a bit low for an event, so I decided to post it on PCDN. Not only did I end up with a packed house and overflow room, but a new audience that hadn't previously been exposed to our work. I'm incredibly impressed by the responsiveness and efficiency of the staff, by the size of the network, and by the results both together create.Farha Tahir, Program Coordinator and Research Associate in the CSIS Africa Program
