GWSB Net Impact organizes Social Entrepreneurship Panel

The GWSB chapter of Net Impact organized a panel discussion on social entrepreneurship on Sept. 27 designed to help graduate students understand how their degrees can be put to use in jobs that have positive social and environmental impacts.

The panel was moderated by Ayman Tarabishy, research professor of management and executive director of the International Council for Small Business.

Panelists included Charles Segerman, co-founder and CEO of Clean Currents, which offers wind and solar power for homes and businesses; Charlie Denney, senior associate from Alta Planning & Design, the largest bicycle and pedestrian consulting company in the United States; and Songbae Lee, senior investment officer for the Calvert Foundation, which has nearly $200 million invested in organizations that support such causes as affordable housing, microfinance, fair trade coffee and small business development.

Tarabishy will lead a second annual study-abroad program to Egypt in Spring 2013 focusing on corporate social responsibility and social entrepreneurship.  For more on Net Impact, go here.
