Welcome to Kellogg’s First Social Impact Newsletter
Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University
Social Impact Newsletter  /  Winter 2017
Welcome to our quarterly newsletter on the goings-on in Social Impact at Kellogg. I was pleased to hear from so many of you in response to our inaugural newsletter in November. I hope you’ll keep reaching out and connecting.

I heard from alumnus Jeff Shuck ‘09 about his social impact consulting firm Plenty, from Alexis Bonnell (EMBA) ‘09 who works in social innovation for USAID and from Bruce Hoyt ‘84 who leads impact investing for Gary Community Investments in Denver. I’d just like to say that you all are impressive out there and we’ love hearing what you’re up to in the social impact realm in and across your careers.

Jeff Davidoff “It is a false choice to think that you either have to have a successful capitalistic career or do good. One of the great myths of our business time is this notion that the sole goal of the company is to provide the greatest value to its shareholders.”
