I’m honored to be serving as UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Net Impact Club President this year. In my first year, I participated in a wide range of Net Impact’s events, including conferences, training, recruitment events, social gatherings and impact competitions. I built strong relationships with fellow students, who are actively passionate about making a positive impact through their careers. Our goals as an organization for the 2022-2023 school year are as follows:

  • Help students to better understand sustainability applications for their industry and career path regardless of business function through L&D sessions, events, and partnerships across career clubs. 
  • Increase Net Impact Club’s involvement with alumni and corporations to improve sponsorship opportunities, recruitment processes, and awareness of career opportunities/ paths. 
  • Successfully execute/ revitalize Net Impact events following COVID such as in-person Green Week, Careers with Impact Forum, Business Plan-a-thon, and Invest for Impact competition.

Having been interested in sustainability and social impact for years, I am excited to serve as EVP of Net Impact for the 2022-2023 school year. This is an organization that brings in truly passionate students who want to better the world around them and themselves. I look forward to building upon the existing accomplishments of this club to enact new programs and ideas with the ultimate goal of creating a more sustainable community here at Kenan-Flagler.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, concerns, or event ideas!
