I am so excited to be going to Michigan this week for the 2010 Net Impact Conference. The conference will be the temporary home for many students in top ranked business graduate schools and other business professionals. The theme of this year's conference is "2020: Vision for a Sustainable Decade".
The Kelley Net Impact chapter will be taking 2 van loads of people up for the weekend. Many of us came to b-school interested in pursuing a social entrepreneurship MBA, so needless to say, we are all very excited about spending the weekend with like-minded individuals from other top ranked MBAs. The weekend will consist of networking with socially responsible corporations and non-profit organizations, listening to panelists talking about topics ranging from corporate social responsibility to social investing to sustainable energy, and learning how others are trying to get these types of issues integrated in the MBA course curriculum. After going to last years conference, I know how amazing the experience is going to be, and I can't wait to share some stories and pictures with you upon my return!
