Welcome to Smith!

Hi first years and welcome to Smith!

As you know, MBAA Club tabling will take place this week and you will be able to learn more about and start getting involved with the student clubs and associations of your preference.

We are the Smith Chapter of Net Impact (https://netimpact.org/), a global organization that seeks to promote business practices that drive social and environmental change. We are MBA students with interests in fields like sustainability, impact investment, clean energy, CSR, finance & development, microfinance, and many other areas in which sound business practices and positive social impact intersect. The following are some of the events we will be hosting this year:


October 1st – Cases and Beer
October 21st – Conference Prep Lunch
October 24th – October 26th – Net Impact Career Conference (San Jose, CA)
November 19th – Net Impact + Supply Chain Club Greenstorming

TBD – Measuring Social Impact in Impact Investing

TBD – Career Building with More than Money Careers


If you are interested in joining Net Impact at Smith, please stop by MBAA Club tabling on Tuesday to sign up! Your $10 Registration Fee will provide extra money for the activities we will carry out next year, all of which aim to enhance Smith’s presence in the sustainability field. Being a member of Net Impact will allow you to be involved in many ways with one of the most organized clubs at school and with one of the most recognized and fastest-growing world-wide professional organizations.

We must also point out that, for those interested in leadership positions at Smith’s Net Impact Chapter (i.e., forming part of the First-year Board), membership will be an application requirement.

All members of our Board (Amanda Mendoza, Mattie Ressler, Tom Jepsen, Blake Carlton and Luis Espinosa) will be happy to chat with you and tell you more about the things we do here at Smith.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday!
P.S.- The first 30 MBAs to sign up for Net Impact will get this useful Smith-Snack-Bag. Great for bringing sandwiches and/or snacks to school!
