Net Impact is a new generation of leaders who use our careers to tackle the world’s toughest problems.
By doing so, we show the world it’s possible to make a net impact that benefits not just the bottom line – but people and planet, too.
Together, we spend about half our waking hours at work each year.
That’s more than 250 billion collective hours.
Yet volunteering accounts for only 3 billion hours.
What if we could spend more of our working hours creating social and environmental change, instead of squeezing our impact into nights and weekends?
“The people changing the world can be found in every industry, in every company, in every function. Net Impact brings these people together, helping them integrate these values into their work.”
- Liz Abbett, Lifetime MemberProgram Manager, Value Chain Compliance and Social Responsibility | Cisco Systems
