Net Impact ... are you in the know? :)
Net Impact is an international nonprofit with a mission to inspire, educate, and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world.
Spanning six continents, the organization's membership of approximately 15,000 people makes up one of the most influential networks of professionals and students in existence today. Net Impact members are current and emerging leaders in corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, nonprofit management, international development, and environmental sustainability who are actively improving the world.
The organization is headquartered in San Francisco but has student and professional chapters worldwide that hold their own local events. To learn more about the chapters, go here.
Net Impact also organizes an annual conference in the USA -- this year it's on Cornell's campus in NY.
The 2009 Net Impact Conference will bring together the players behind the sustainable global enterprise movement, including sustainability and corporate responsibility practitioners, social entrepreneurs, and nonprofit leaders. What inspires them to challenge the status quo? What obstacles do they face? And what approaches have led them to success in changing the rules of the game?
