Join fellow members for our second installation of the Net Impact
Boston book club! We are excited to announce that the August book is “How to Change the World, Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas” by David Bornstein.
The book profiles nine champions of social change who developed
innovative ways to address needs they saw around them in places as
distinct as Bombay, India; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and inner-city
Washington, D.C. To demonstrate the commonality among experiences as diverse as a Hungarian mother striving to provide a fuller life for
her handicapped son and a South African nurse starting a home-care
system for AIDS patients, the book presents useful unifying summaries
of “four practices of innovative organizations” and “six qualities of
successful social entrepreneurs.” For synopsis and reviews of the book, go to www.howtochangetheworld.org
We will be meeting at 7:30 on Wednesday August 20th, at the Trident Booksellers & Café.
