Welcome to the Social Impact Network

Social impact is no longer simply the concern or focus of NGOs. Big consulting firms like McKinsey and BCG integrate social impact in both the work their employees do and the collaborations they have with larger communities. At Carey, we encourage our students to pursue professional opportunities that allow them to have a positive impact on society. Such opportunities are varied and can be found in various fields including the nonprofit sector, government, corporate social responsibility, or social entrepreneurship. Students often consider the social impact network in conjunction with one of our other six networks: Technology, Finance, Consulting, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, and Health Care.
