NetImpact, a San Francisco-based network of MBA students focused on corporate responsibility, is moving from The Tides Center in San Francisco to Business for Social Responsibility, a San Francisco-based organization of businesses.
“The members of NetImpact find their way to their schools’ chapters because they’re looking for like-minded people to network with,” says Laurie Gray, the group’s acting director.
“Being connected with BSR,” she says, “gives them an opportunity to further those causes once they get involved in the business world.”
NetImpact has about 60 chapters in North America, including a few in Canada, plus one each in London, Australia, and Denmark.
“Over time, we’re going to be pushing more toward an international expansion,” Gray says.
