Careers for Greater Social Impact Virtual Gathering


Careers for Greater Social Impact LinkedIn Group Virtual Gathering

Join me for a virtual get together and meet other social impact leaders, practitioners, and change makers from around the world.

12 years ago I was teaching the a course at NYU called Careers for Greater Social Impact and thought wouldn't it would be great to create a LinkedIn Group in tandem with the course.

Over the course of those 12 years, Careers for Greater Social Impact has grown to over 4200+ change makers and social impact professionals/leaders from around the world.

It feels like the right moment to invite members of this LinkedIn Group to come together to get to know one another and have a space to talk about any and all things social-impact related, such as:
