Net impact. I like the concept behind the Net Impact Conference, to be held October 28-30 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Hosted by the Ross School of Business, the conference focuses on all aspects of corporate responsibility. The result? Larger net impact.

Tracks include:

  • Corporate impact
  • Energy and clean technology
  • Environment and natural resources
  • International development
  • Investing for impact
  • Professional development
  • Social innovation
  • Urban revitalization and community development
