If business has the potential to make a positive net social, environmental and economic impact, then cultivating a network of leaders to realize that goal is an exceptionally important task. That’s the work of Net Impact. With 125 chapters on 4 continents in 75 cities and 80 graduate schools, the organization enables its members to use business for social good in their educations, careers and communities.
Net Impact’s 14th annual conference, which is expected to draw 1400 participants, will take place from October 27th through the 29th at the Kellogg School of Management, located at Chicago’s Northwestern University. This year’s theme is “Navigating Global Change.” If you’re in the neighborhood, check it out. Some of the Thought Kitchen regulars will be there, presenting ideas and engaging in dialogue with the participants.
