Event Description


It's a testament to our UCLA Anderson alumni base that so many find opportunities to give back through involvement with social impact and not-for-profit organizations. 

Recognizing this, UCLA launched Impact@Anderson to foster collaboration across students, alumni, staff, faculty and the broader community to seed and accelerate positive social, environmental and economic impact around the world.  Through research, practice and thought leadership, UCLA Anderson aims to elevate the role of the business in social impact and challenge conventional theories.

Please join us on Wednesday, November 16 as we host Tara Roth, President of the Goldhirsh Foundation, to talk about the business of doing good and the foundation's initiative to crowdsource the distribution of $1,000,000 in funds to Los Angeles non-profits.RSVP today. Space is limited.
