At the conference, I had the opportunity to attend workshops that involved cross-sector panelists from business, local governments, social entrepreneurships, nonprofits, foundations, and NGOs. One workshop involved a case study of coordinating operations between a business and nonprofit to fill the gap between food waste and food access.

“My favorite part of the Net Impact conference was getting to meet lots of experts and peers working in the fields I’m passionate about. I went to an Impact Investing panel and was super fascinated by one panelist, but the line to talk to him was super long, so I left disappointed. An hour later, he happened to sit in the seat next to mine at a pitch competition. We talked about our lives and backgrounds, his company, and the city of Atlanta for the next 30 minutes. Those kinds of informal run-ins with super cool potential employers and mentors happened all 3 days.”
