Net Impact stu­dent group to host kick-​​off event

WHO/​WHAT: Net Impact, a student-​​run non­profit orga­ni­za­tion at North­eastern Uni­ver­sity, will wel­come Trish Karter, Founder, Pres­i­dent and CEO of Dancing Deer Baking Co. as she speaks at the group’s kick-​​off event. Karter will dis­cuss Dancing Deer’s ori­gins and the role the com­pany has taken in cor­po­rate social respon­si­bility as she has found a way to com­bine her envi­ron­mental, com­mu­nity and busi­ness inter­ests to form a wildly suc­cessful company.

Located in Rox­bury, MA, Dancing Deer was incor­po­rated in 1994 and con­tinues to strive to uphold its mis­sion in caring for the envi­ron­ment and com­mu­nity. Under Karter’s lead­er­ship, the com­pany makes choices in its pack­aging, pro­duc­tion and facil­i­ties man­age­ment, which are friendly to the envi­ron­ment. Dancing Deer’s main phil­an­thropic efforts are devoted to helping home­less fam­i­lies through the Sweet Home Project.

Northeastern’s Net Impact chapter was founded last year as they joined an inter­na­tional group of more than 10,000 mem­bers who make a tan­gible dif­fer­ence in their uni­ver­si­ties, orga­ni­za­tions, and com­mu­ni­ties. The mis­sion of the non­profit orga­ni­za­tion is to make a pos­i­tive impact on society by growing and strength­ening a com­mu­nity of new leaders who use busi­ness to improve the world.

Net Impact mem­bers are cur­rent and emerging leaders in cor­po­rate social respon­si­bility, social entre­pre­neur­ship, non­profit man­age­ment, inter­na­tional devel­op­ment, and envi­ron­mental sus­tain­ability who are actively improving the world.

WHEN: Wednesday, March 26, at 4:00 p.m.

WHERE: 150 Dodge Hall, North­eastern Uni­ver­sity, 360 Hunt­ington Ave., Boston, MA 02115.

Media is wel­come to attend the lecture.
