Net Impact is a non-profit organization with student and professional members using the power of business to create a more social and environmentally sustainable world. The organization has thousands of professional, graduate and undergraduate members on six continents, working in or pursuing careers in corporate reponsibillity, social entrepreneurship, non-profit management, international development and environmental sustainability. The 11th Annual UBC Net Impact Conference 2013 held on April 19 was a great success!
"Joining UBC Net Impact has changed my perspective. I’m beginning to see that everyone has a different role to play. Using business to “do well by doing good” is one of the core principles of Net Impact. However, not everyone has had the opportunities that I have had to wield the tool of business in order to further the cause of sustainability. Thus, those individuals marching on TV are doing what they can to be heard. And that is what the UBC Net Impact Conference is really about: communication." - Spencer Landsiedel
