Ok, all you do-gooders. This is the event for you. It's one of the biggest conferences for those who make a difference in the world.
Called Net Impact, this conference brings together more than 2,500 changemakers to "explore the relationships, ideas and tools that will help you accelerate your impact through the work that you do."
As they put it:
Twenty years ago, when sustainability was a fringe concept in the business world, a small group of friends started a network for MBA students who wanted to make a difference. Ten years ago, sustainable business was just starting to look like a trend. Today, tens of thousands of new leaders are making a net impact through the work they do – in every industry and job function, at every stage of career.
Yet there’s still so much to do. It's time to take everything we've accomplished in the last twenty years and accelerate our rate of change: we need to move faster and think bigger to address today’s global challenges.
And that's exactly what we'll do. So if you're up for the challenge, join us in Baltimore this fall!
So if you're looking to make a change in the world, this might be the event to connect you with other changemakers and provide you the inspiration and help you need to keep your mission moving in the right direction.
