Net Impact Minneapolis: Sustainability, Sweets, and a Survey!

Dear Net Impacters,

Happy early Thanksgiving! Read this newsletter for exciting announcements about two upcoming events, and submit your feedback to us through by clicking on our survey at the bottom.

Sustainability: Preparing the Next Generation of Sustainability Leaders


The demand for sustainability leaders is growing as more and more businesses are recognizing the impact on the triple bottom line. But, what does it really mean to have a career in sustainability? Aside from joining a company’s formal sustainability team, where are there opportunities within a company for people interested in making an impact? What kind of talent are companies seeking?

Join us on December 11th from 1:00pm-3:30pm at University of Minnesota, Hanson Hall 1-102, as we discuss how best to prepare the next generation of sustainability leaders. Hear from a panel of sustainability experts on industry trends, career opportunities and ways to influence change from within. We’ll also explore how students and career-changers are preparing to make an impact.

This event is hosted in partnership by Sustainability Practitioners Roundtable, Net Impact Minneapolis, Net Impact Best Buy, Carlson Net Impact, Net Impact University of Minnesota Undergrad, and Net Impact University of St Thomas.

Participating in the event is free, but please RSVP here. More information is also provided on the EventBrite.

Questions? Please contact Dani Schurter at 612-334-3388 ext. 137.

Sweets: Monthly Networking Breakfasts Continue

We have had a great turnout at our monthly Net Impact Networking Breakfasts so far! Thank you to those who have attended and started your first Tuesday of the month with us. It has been great getting to know you, sharing experiences, and discussing topics of mutual interest such as social entrepreneurship, sustainability, and of course our love for coffee. The next breakfast event will be on Tuesday, December 1st at Moose & Sadie’s in the North Loop. Members of the Net Impact Minneapolis Professional Chapter Board will be there from 7:30am-8:30am. Come join us for the whole hour or just pop in for a bit. As a reminder, no RSVP necessary.

We’ve decided that we’ll continue to hold our monthly breakfasts at Moose & Sadie’s for about 6 months, and then switch to a new location. Join us each month there, and then stay tuned later for our new location beginning in the late spring. We look forward to seeing you!
