Intersection of Business, Society, and Self
Are you contemplating how you will bring life to your social impact interests in a corporate career? Do you think about whether you want to have success or significance, and whether there has to be a trade-off? In this workshop series, prominent Booth alumni share their experiences and offer insights on striking that balance.
During “The Intersection of Business, Society, and Self,” hosted by Booth’s Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation and the Harry L. Davis Center for Leadership, Booth students learn how to become a leader in your future workplace and in your community by:
- Better understanding how corporate leaders are making decisions about social responsibility
- Considering ways to develop your civic leadership
- Unpacking what motivates your interest in this area
Past speakers include Rich Hoops, ’00, cofounder of Impact HUB Boulder; Sonny Garg, AB ’89, MBA ’00, energy solutions lead at Uptake; Jessica Droste Yagan, managing partner at Impact Engine; Sam Yagan, cofounder of OkCupid and CEO of e-commerce company ShopRunner; Liz Thompson, president of the Cleveland Avenue Foundation for Education; and Don Thompson, former McDonald’s CEO and founder of Cleveland Avenue, Inc.
