What is a Reciprocity Ring®?

A Reciprocity Ring® is a dynamic group exercise created by Dr. Wayne Baker at the University of Michigan that helps teams and groups of all sizes learn “pay-it-forward” principles while creating and cementing high-quality connections. The overarching goal is to build social capital and strengthen networks. Key objectives include:

  • Building a sense of mutual accomplishment among participants;
  • Instilling the practice of reciprocity (give and take), and highlighting the importance of contribution and engagement among peers;
  • Helping meet specific individual and/or organizational needs; and
  • Exposing participants to the depth of resources available among their colleagues.

How does it work?

Participants complete a baseline survey prior to the event so we can assess the baseline professional network. In-person at the event, participants ask and offer help through an interactive activity:

  • Ask for help through an electronic platform (i.e. “teach me Stata” or “connect me to the Penn Injury Science Center”)
  • Asks” are announced and posted as participants make offers to help by sharing their contact information
  • Participants exchange information, and a new social network is created based on the responses

After the event, we help facilitate communication in order to promote long-term, productive partnerships.

This event is hosted and sponsored by the Penn Injury Science Center at the University of Pennsylvania in partnership with the network of Injury Control Research Centers.
