UF Impact Scholars & Spring 2022 Opportunities

1. Calling all Gator Changemakers!

  • Would you like to learn how to innovatively & sustainably solve social, environmental, and economic problems?
  • Are you interested in leveraging the power of business as a force for good?
  • Would you like to help build an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economic system for people & the planet?
  • Do you want to be a changemaker?

Yes? Great! Join us in Spring 2022 – Mod 4 (2/28/22 – 4/22/22) in the UF Business for Good Lab: Sustainable Business Consulting course (ENT6930, 12797, 1D88 / ENT4934, section 10034, 1E88), meeting T/R 7-8th periods, entirely online synchronously via Zoom & Canvas. For more information, see: https://bit.ly/UF-businessforgoodlab-promo-spring2022

2. If you have schedule conflicts for Spring Mod 4:

Please plan to join us in Summer A for our “Emerging Enterprise Consulting: Collaboration & Capacity Building for Changemakers” course. More info about that will be shared as summer nears. It’s similar to the Business for Good Lab (in that students work on consulting teams with local ventures), but different in that the ventures are all run by folks from marginalized & historically disadvantaged backgrounds, and the projects are not necessarily focused on helping companies become certified B Corporations, instead we create capacity-building deliverables with our Community Partner Entrepreneurs (including: Impact Business Model Canvases, Social Media Marketing Strategy Handbooks, Marketing Plan & Handbooks with Email Campaigns, Pitch Videos, Sustainable Funding Strategies, and other materials specific to the needs of their CPEs, like a Cost-Benefit Analysis and a Handbook for Grant Applications).

The good news is that each of the courses above fulfills the Practice Impact requirement for Impact Scholars

3. Join Optimize, it’s now free!

Speaking of certified B Corporations & Public Benefit Corporations (and the difference between the two), one of my favorite companies (which is BOTH a Public Benefit Corporation & certified B Corp), Heroic (https://www.heroic.us), just announced that they’ve removed the paywall from their most popular platform to make it more accessible to everybody. Y’all, this is a BIG deal. I’ve been a fan of their work for years and it’s my superhero-secret-special-tool! The Social Entrepreneur behind Heroic, Brian Johnson, has created over 1000 Philosopher’s Notes (book summaries), +1s (short videos), and 101s/masterclasses, with the mission of empowering people to be the best version of ourselves so we can make a positive impact in the world.

To read more about why they’ve decided to make their core product free (and ad-free too), see: https://www.optimize.me/is-now-free
I encourage you to sign up (and tell your friends) and dive into the wealth of information & wisdom shared here: https://optimize.me/

4. Tell your friends 

We’d love your help encouraging your friends to join us in class in Spring or Summer A 2022 and to apply to become UF Impact Scholars.
Can you help get out the word, please? Follow us on Instagram and Facebook @gatorsforgood and please refer interested folks to: https://warrington.ufl.edu/social-impact-and-sustainability-initiative/programs/impact-scholars/

Membership Opportunity- Gator for UNICEF!

Gator for UNICEF is a student-led organization part of the UNICEF USA clubs program. UNICEF USA and our club work to strengthen the goals of UNICEF, a United Nations nonprofit organization aiding children and women in developing countries worldwide.

 

The chapter participates in advocacy on behalf of UNICEF USA, speaking on important legislation that affects both the city of Gainesville and the country. Last year, Gator for UNICEF spoke with Gainesville’s Mayor, Lauren Poe, about UNICEF’s Child-Friendly Cities Initiative. Many of the members also participated in UNICEF USA’s 2021 Virtual Advocacy Week, where they met with the offices of Florida legislators such as Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Rick Scott, and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz. This semester, Gator for UNICEF is excited to continue promoting the importance of youth voices and child safety through advocacy.

 

Gator for UNICEF members also benefit from speakers such as Dr. Stephen Mulkey, who spoke about the urgency of climate change at a General Body Meeting last semester. Dr. Mulkey helped club members learn more about the significance of climate change, its impact on the world’s children, and how to educate others on such global issues.

 

The club also provides opportunities for professional development in the form of leadership positions, networking opportunities, and headshot events.

 

This Fall semester there are four remaining general body meetings in addition to multiple fundraising, advocacy, and social events. Membership is open until September 29th. The third general body meeting of the semester is on Wednesday, September 29th in Matherly Hall Room 0002 and will be the last chance to register for membership. Get excited for a Halloween themed meeting where you will learn about Trick or Treat for UNICEF!

Thank you for taking the time to learn about Gator for UNICEF. To stay updated on club events and announcements, follow on Instagram: @g4unicef.
