Social Impact for Students: How to change the world through Social Enterprise 

Si-logoMay 14, 5:30-7 pm, 390 Paccar Hall

What inspires and motivates social entrepreneurs?

How do students leverage the resources they have to change the world with like-minded individuals?

And how are these ideas developed into an achievable solution?

Join us for a panel and small group discussion with four local organizations that are focused on social innovation: an approach that harnesses new strategies, concepts, and organizations that meet social needs of all kinds – from working conditions and education to community development and health – and that extend and strengthen civil society. Speakers will discuss the everyday experiences that motivate them to make a collective impact in a society that is becoming increasingly independent. This is also an opportunity to NETWORK and learn about existing on-campus opportunities that will further these connections. 

Who will be speaking?

Steve Schwartz – Upaya;  Lindsey Engh – HUB Seattle; Mark Horoszowski- MovingWorlds; Cole Hoover – Global Brigades Institutes (and formerly Lumana)

Who should come?

- Students from ANY major with an interest in social innovation and its impact in a university setting

- Anyone seeking to contribute their learned skills to a social cause

- Anyone who is curious about how Seattle-based entrepreneurs work effectively in their communities or around the world.

Please RSVP, as refreshments will be provided: https://www.facebook.com/events/195951293885904/
