Professional Offerings

Career Expo



The 2017 Net Impact Conference will feature a number of professionals-only sessions on Friday, October 27. A few of these include:

How to Create Purpose-Driven Brands

The question is no longer if companies will become purposeful, but when. Many are wondering how do you authentically embed purpose in a company and sustain it. What programming and messaging can we create to reflect these values? Hear from top professionals who successfully baked purpose into their teams and company. They will share how they answered those questions, and you will learn how you might do the same.

Careers with Purpose: Building Skills-based Volunteering into Any Organization

What role do academic institutions have in shaping the next generation of purposeful leaders? A big one. Hear from representatives of different institutions to share how they are reimagining their frameworks to support their students. The discussion will provide an opportunity for knowledge sharing, spark new ideas and to identifying areas where collectively business schools can do more to offer knowledge and skill building that advances economic, social and environmental prosperity.

Please view our entire schedule for all sessions.

Professional Corner

On Friday, a specific section of the convention center will be reserved for professional attendees. The sessions for this group will also be clustered in this area. The goal of this is to help professionals build connection and community with each other. Professional level badges will be required to enter this space. Professionals will also have access to a hosted lunch in the Professionals Corner on Friday.
