May School Meeting explores Social Impact at LBS

Social impact was the theme of May's School Meeting, where a range of speakers from different levels across the School addressed the work being done by alumni, faculty, students and staff to ensure that we have a profound impact on the way the world does business and how business impacts the world.

Managing Editor, Thought Leadership Kathy Brewis kicked off the meeting by introducing the latest publication of LBSR - a special edition called '30 people who are changing the world' - which puts the spotlight on individuals who are making a real difference and encouraging change, many of whom are LBS alumni.

Associate Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship Dr Ioannnis Ioannou then talked about how social impact has become a core teaching element at the School, while Claire Murphy, MBA2019 and Social Impact Conference VP for the LBS Social Impact Club spoke about the LBS for Good Conference which took place in March, as well as the growing interest around the topic from within the student community.

Sammy Engele, Victoria Hanau and Vinay Mistry from the Community Action Group (CAG) concluded the meeting by communicating the opportunities available for staff to get involved in volunteering around the community, and shared recent examples - from reading with local primary school children to cooking for homeless shelters.
