How to Elevate Your Social Impact with Dolly Parikh

September 21 @ 12:00 - 13:00 CDT

Join Dolly Parikh, Founder and CEO of Aloki Inc. as she shares insights on strategic planning for social ventures

Entrepreneurs have positive impact-driven goals but often get stuck when communicating these items to investors, customers, and employees. If you want more buy-in on these goals, you’ll need a process that provides you with a roadmap to get there. Dolly will share the tools you need to create that roadmap to help you align your social and environmental impact with the business goals you have set for success.

Dolly will also help you think through how business and financial models ensure that the organization is profitable, sustainable, and scalable but miss on asking the tough questions about societal and environmental impacts, making them an afterthought. Consumers, communities, and investors have shown that social and ecological missions can be key drivers for long term sustainable growth in our new world, so join us to learn how to elevate your impact in this session.

Dolly will cover:

  • Stakeholder alignment on the problem you want to solve and for whom is a key driver for intentional social impact and change.
  • Intentionally integrate social and environmental impact forecasts into your planning process.
  • How to have a line of sight on the theory of change and measuring success is critical to achieving organizational goals.
