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.

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.
