In the Puget Sound…
The Net Impact Seattle Professional Chapter brings together area professionals who are in corporate social responsibility positions; would like to learn more about CSR; and/or are engaged in the CSR conversation, but would like tangible ways to translate the discussion to their professional lives. We’re focused on helping our members learn more about sustainability and social responsibility and network with other like-minded professionals.
Net Impact Seattle has a diverse and dynamic group of young professionals on the Board.
In Graduate School…
Net Impact started as a supplement to an MBA – many of the issues surrounding CSR weren’t being addressed in regular curricula, and Net Impact started to fill in the blanks. Today, many of the local graduate programs have Net Impact Student Chapters. If you’re an MBA student, visit the chapters at these area schools: University of Washington, and Bainbridge Island.
