Week-in-Cities with MBA Net Impact Club

Many of Fuqua’s student-run clubs organize “Week-in-Cities” trips to different regions of the country to network with businesses and alumni. As a cabinet member of the Net Impact Club, I had the pleasure of co-organizing this year’s trek to the Bay Area, which occurred a couple months ago during Fall Break.

Every year the Net Impact Club schedules the Week-in-Cities trip in conjunction with the Net Impact National Conference, which was held in San Jose and wonderfully described in a previous post by second-year blogger Jen McFann.

During the three days before the national conference, our group of 30 learned a lot from wonderful panels of socially-minded businesses men and women from 6 focus areas: Social Finance, Energy & Sustainability, Education, Corporate Social Responsibility, Social Impact Consulting and Global Health & International Development. We also visited the offices of Clif Bar, Nest Labs, RSF Social Finance and FSG Social Impact Consulting. We attended a happy hour with many Fuqua alumni from a variety of industries who live in the Bay Area.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here are the highlights of our Week-in-Cities trip!
