How many of your students are inclined to want to solve big problems? Work in nonprofits? Use entrepreneurial thinking to kickstart work on a cause that matters to them?
There is a speaker on campus tomorrow night that they should go hear. Nancy Lublin, the founder of Dress for Success, will be on campus to give the Leadership Project keynote address. Details are below.
And if your student wants to help Dress for Success, a clothing drive is being held to support the work of the organization. They are in special need of things like purses, scarves, jewelry and accessories. If your daughter’s closet is overflowing with things she can’t use, please encourage her to donate to another in the spirit of Pro Humanitate.
One last word about Pro Humanitate, from my colleagues in the Pro Humanitate Institute: “The Pro Humanitate Institute is excited to announce the inaugural BRANCHES justice retreat! Students will explore issues of identity, including gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, ability, and socio-economic status. The retreat will take place on February 20-22 at New Hope Camp and Conference Center in Chapel Hill, NC, and it is free for students.” Interested students may apply here.
Leadership Project Keynote – Wednesday, February 4 at 6:00 pm to 7:15 pm, Wait Chapel
Nancy Lublin builds exciting things out of people and ideas. At 23, she turned a $5,000 inheritance into Dress for Success, a global entity that provides interview suits and career development training to women in need.
Today, Dress for Success is in more than 125 cities, including Winston-Salem. In 2003, Lublin came to the nonprofit Do Something and transformed it into DoSomething.org, which is now among the largest online youth service organizations in the world.
In 2013, Lublin started her third company, raising $4 million to launch the Crisis Text Line. Named one of the “World’s 50 Greatest Leaders” by Fortune, Lublin’s approach to business, teens, and technology has transcended the not-for-profit world.
