Changemaker Mentoring

Please join the Lewis Institute for virtual mentoring and conversations with Deborah Leipziger, our Senior Fellow in Social Innovation.

In the spirit of the Lewis Institute’s belief that “everyone’s needs are better met in community,” Changemaker Mentoring allows Babson students and alumni to get support and be a resource to one another in a small-group conversation.

We invite you to:

  • Bring your curiosity. Your questions can be as broad or specific as you’d like.
  • Get real-time ideas, feedback, and connections to help you take your next step or move your idea, business, nonprofit, or career forward.
  • Discover pathways for creating social and environmental impact. Hear examples of how entrepreneurial leaders are advancing the UN Global Goals around the world.
  • Have deep discussions about the evolving standards and language of sustainability and social responsibility.
  • Simply come say hello and connect with fellow changemakers.

Feel free to join at any point during the one-hour time block, and stay as long as you’d like. A Zoom link will be emailed to you after registering through Eventbrite.
