Net Impact’s Annual Conference, NI18: Outside the Lines!




 

 

 

 

 

 

This year’s Net Impact Conference, titled NI18: Outside the Lines!, will be held Thursday, October 25, through Saturday, October 27, at the Phoenix Convention Center. The annual conference brings current and aspiring leaders together for a dynamic exchange of ideas about how we can work together to tackle our toughest social and environmental problems. Today's challenges are more complex than any one person or organization can solve, and the conference is a unique experience that not only guides but encourages university students, new graduates, and more established professionals to connect and share ideas about what works, potential career paths, and forward-looking innovations.

The Net Impact Conference is known for its array of approaches to in-depth innovations and specific strategies to make impactful change. With more than 40 sessions to choose from around the themes of impact investing, corporate impact, social entrepreneurship, philanthropy and the social sector, and more, together, attendees will explore how to further their impact in causes like climate action, equity, mobility and food solutions, just to name a few.

Establishing meaningful connections continues to be one of the main reasons so many emerging leaders come to the Net Impact Conference each fall. These connections can lead to new ideas, opportunities, partnerships, jobs and friendships.

NI18 will provide the forum where like-minded individuals can meet and mingle. Time for both formal and informal networking opportunities are built into the program. These opportunities include topic-specific networking salons, common spaces to relax and meet other attendees, and a variety of parties to attend where people can unwind after a full day of programming.

Location: 100 N. 3rd St., Phoenix. For more information or to register, visit NetImpact.org/ni18/home.
