Lunch with Leaders

The Do Good Accelerator is proud to host its Lunch with Leaders Series on the 2nd Wednesday of (almost) every month. This series provides UMD students and members of the local community a chance to meet and engage in dialogue with local nonprofit leaders.

By sitting down and speaking with leaders from local nonprofit organizations who are already tackling today’s biggest challenges, students can deepen their understanding about social issues, learn about why these issues exist, what current solutions are being implemented, how current gaps can be filled and ask questions that will enable students to think of new and innovative approaches to solve today’s pressing challenges.

Once registration is open be sure to reserve your seat – space will be limited. And, come hungry, lunch will be provided!
