Apr. 15: Building Organizations for Change: Social Enterprise and Nonprofit Development

Posted on

Have you ever thought about starting your own social enterprise or nonprofit organization?  Whether it is something you may like to do soon after graduating or down the road, now is the time to start learning about it!  Please join PILC and the founders of several social justice organizations—East Bay Family Defenders, Root & Rebound, and Streetwide.org—for an informative panel about how and why they forged their own paths. The panelists will discuss their career trajectories and the nuts-and-bolts of how they started their organizations, as well as share advice for aspiring social entrepreneurs.  The panel will be followed by an informal reception in Sexton Lounge.
