Thank you to everyone who joined us for this memorable 10th Annual Sustainable Business and Social Impact (SBSI) Conference on February 11, 2015!
This year’s theme, A Decade of Ideas, A Lifetime of Action came to life with two dynamic and empowering keynote speakers, U.S. Secretary Thomas E. Perez and Seventh Generation President & CEO, John Replogle.
The day also included six engaging panels on corporate social responsibility, education, global health, impact investing, social enterprise, and sustainability. The speakers, including ten Duke Alumni, shared their experiences, challenges, and what the future holds of this sector.
Additionally, in honor of the theme, A Decade of Ideas, A Lifetime of Action, we donated $2500 to Embrace through a Duke Alumna founded organization, Universal Giving. With this funding, Embrace will be able to provide 50 infants with life saving warmth. As a social enterprise that developed an innovative and affordable infant warmer, Embrace was also featured as the case study during the Tri-Sector Leadership Workshop.
We hope you will stay connected and join us in 2016 for the next incredible SBSI Conference!
