Saint Joseph's Net Impact Chapter in Philadelphia aims to create an educational forum for the exchange and dissemination of ideas formed at the intersection of business practice and social change. Those participating in this conversation will find a community of like-minded leaders at SJU.In particular, we aim:
- to contribute to the educational community by bringing speakers to campus who have knowledge of topics like Socially Responsible Investment, Corporate Social Responsibility, Non-Profit Management, Business Ethics, Economic Development, and Social Entrepreneurship;
- to influence the Graduate Business curriculum;
- to help students find and secure career opportunities by providing programmatic resources and a strong network;
- to represent Saint Joseph's at the Annual Net Impact Conference
The formation of a Net Impact Chapter at SJU fits naturally with the University's Jesuit tradition of encouraging a focus on others and unifying thoughtfulness with action.
