The UVA Clubs program and the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy invite you to join Professor Christine Mahoney  for a private conference call to discuss solutions through social entrepreneurship. Professor Mahoney, Professor of Public Policy and Politics, and Director of Social Entrepreneurship at UVA, will share her thoughts and will then answer live questions from the audience.

Making Your Money Work For You and the World: Social enterprise, impact investing, and the power of investing for good

At a time when markets are in flux and economies are at a standstill, socially responsible investing is outperforming conventional investments and having positive social and environmental impact at the same time. Professor Mahoney will lead a conversation about impact investing, social business, and how your retirement portfolio can be an engine for positive social impact.

Good news! Social Entrepreneurship @ UVA has just been recognized by Ashoka through their #millionsofchangemakers campaign as a global leader in social entrepreneurship and changemaker education. Learn more on our website:
