PBworks is a part of the PeaceDot movement to have thoughtful, modern companies promote peace and harmony in the world.

 

We'll be using this space ongoing to showcase the ways our PBworks collaboration tool can be used to improve understanding.

 

At its core, a collaborative workspace encourages inputs from more people than top-down dictums or memos - more people can be heard, fewer people are disenfranchised, and the group will be able to make better decisions. It is our founder's belief that use of such technologies are inherently more likely to spur dialogue and respect and engender a more peaceful planet.
