Kellogg Net Impact
Net Impact empowers a new generation to drive social and environmental change throughout their careers. Our volunteer-led chapter drives change by creating a like-minded community and providing events and programs that support members who aim to use business as a force for environmental & social impact. Join us!
At Kellogg, we believe in the power of our management education to help us drive social change across sectors. We believe that the most compelling frontier in any discipline, industry, or sector—be it finance or marketing; CPG or consulting; social enterprise, nonprofit, business or government—is where innovators are using the business toolkit to drive social impact. At Kellogg, we educate, inspire, and equip leaders who will drive this change and advance these frontiers.
