Do you find yourself sitting in meetings daydreaming of:
* How to integrate meaningful hearth initiatives into a new wellness program?
* Engaging your colleagues in a community outreach program?
* Where to get the support and resources you need to launch a waste reduction program at your organization?
* Building a program to provide professional development opportunities for valued employees?
If so, then you just might be a social intrapreneur, destined to use the power of business to increase the social, environmental and financial bottom line for your organization.
Starting a change program within your organization can seem overwhelming, especially at a company that lacks a corporate citizenship or stewardship agenda. This Net Impact Seattle program will help you take the plunge. You'll learn practical tools to identify, launch and complete a successful project from experts in the burgeoning field of social intrapreneurship. So what are you waiting for?
