Lunch & Learn Series

Social value creation involves using the tools of business to advance economic, social, and environmental prosperity. Be it an entrepreneurial venture, a public-private partnership, a multinational organization, or mission-driven social enterprise, each approach offers unique pathways toward creating a better world through business.

Twice each semester the Center for Social Value Creation explores these pathways by hosting intimate discussions between Smith students and industry professionals. Students benefit by gaining exposure to a variety of business leaders and perspectives, engaging in meaningful dialog, and developing real-world connections. Sessions are limited to 15 students. RSVP’s are required.

Lunch and Learns for Fall 2018 are listed below. Industry guests and session themes will be announced closer to the event date. To learn more, or to reserve your spot, email us at
