On May 31, 2023, POST and Common Desk invite you to “Do the Right Thing – Social Entrepreneurship and Community Impact”, a series of talks with innovative social entrepreneurs. If you are someone with a passion for taking your mission-based organization to the next level, come learn from leaders in the non-profit world about the trials and triumphs they have encountered in their careers.

Introducing our next speaker, Angela Blanchard, a community development expert who has led disaster recovery and immigrant integration efforts in Texas and around the world. She was the President and CEO of Baker Ripley, Texas’ largest community development organization. Angela has received numerous awards and recognition including the prestigious Heinz Prize for Improving the Human Condition and has served as a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution and Brown University’s Watson Institute.

The learning series will be held in the Common Desk Training Room (Suite 1420) in POST’s Z Atrium on Level 1 and will be followed by a happy hour where attendees can network with expert speakers and like-minded individuals.
