Illinois Institute of Technology Net Impact Chapter:
Leaders who are changing the world through business.
The graduate Net Impact chapter at Stuart School of Business strives to educate Illinois Institute of Technology students about sustainable careers and enterprises as well as provide opportunities and connections in the industry. Net Impact is a new generation of leaders who use our careers to tackle the world’s toughest problems. We put our business skills to work for good throughout every sector. By doing so, we show the world that it’s possible to make a net impact that benefits not just the bottom line, but people and planet too.

Net Impact members new and old came together on September 2nd at IIT Tower to kick off the Fall 2015 semester. After some introductions, the executive board introduced Net Impact and some potential projects the organization could work on.
Why Net Impact?
All together, we spend about half our waking hours at work. Collectively, that’s more than 250 billion hours every year. In what’s left of our spare time, many of us volunteer - racking up just 3 billion hours annually. But what if we got to spend more of our working hours creating social and environmental good, instead of squeezing our impact into nights and weekends? We believe this shift is necessary to achieve a more sustainable world: and we’re here to demonstrate that people can make doing good an integral part of just about any job or career.
The mission of IIT Net Impact is to improve the world by growing and strengthening a network of leaders who use the power of business to make a positive net social, environmental, and economic impact.
The goal of IIT Net Impact is to facilitate professional development, cross-industry knowledge-sharing, networking and educational opportunities among members from diverse academic and professional backgrounds on topics related to positive social, environmental and economic impact.
Net Impact will bring together students seeking to network and take action to foster a new generation of leaders who use the power of business to create a better world.
