2018 has started strong at PATHFINDER, from new advisory board members to new international memberships. We’re also very proud to announce we’ve been invited to the prestigious American Express Leadership Academy Global Alumni Summit 2018!
This year’s American Express Leadership Academy Global Alumni Summit, held in New York on April 16-17, convenes 72 social purpose leaders from around the world. While there, we will have the opportunity to connect with these extraordinary civic trailblazers and learn so much.
For more on this and other exciting things we’re up to, see our latest newsletter below.
We have some exciting things to share!
First and foremost, we’re so happy to welcome to our Board of Advisors, Joel Solomon and Neeraj Jain.
Joel is one of Canada’s greatest and most influential impact investors. Neeraj is a successful lifetime entrepreneur and investor. Both gentlemen have informally guided PATHFINDER since the very beginning… since we were just an idea, really. It is our great honor to have the gentlemen onboard.
Next, we were recently selected for a couple of prestigious events. Shivani was accepted to the American Express Leadership Academy Global Alumni Summit 2018. This year’s American Express Leadership Academy Global Alumni Summit convenes 72 social purpose leaders from around the world. While there, we will have the opportunity to connect with these extraordinary civic trailblazers and learn so much.
Jessica now represents us as a member of the prestigious Institute of Directors (IoD), an organization for company directors, senior business leaders and entrepreneurs. The IoD is the UK’s longest running organization for professional leaders (founded in 1903) and stands for “free enterprise, entrepreneurialism, wealth creation and good corporate governance.” We look forward to attending many engaging events and networking with other IoD members in the UK and beyond.
And for those who haven’t checked it out yet, we started the year with our first HuffPost publication. Most recently, we were featured on Your Mark On The World Center for our interview with Purpose Capital Co-Founder, Assaf Weisz.
Finally, we are proud to report that our former placement student, Beccy, is carrying forward PATHFINDER’s values. This autumn, she’ll be in Kathmandu to volunteer as a researcher for Street Child UK, a charity that aims to create educational opportunities for the world’s most vulnerable children. And, she’s cycling there! In order to fundraise for her time in Nepal, Beccy will embark on a solo cycling trip from London to Kathmandu. This 100-day journey will take her through 16 countries and various terrains. We’re rooting for you Beccy!
