Thanks to the small but mighty group of INDEVOR Global Impact Network Members who made our Annual General Meeting on June 10th. We took care of the following business as the global “umbrella” club for engaging alumni and promoting events and resources around all things related to sustainability, a role that saw us formalize a tight collaboration with Community Impact Challenge (CIC) this year and spur a robust and growing membership:
- We voted unanimously to amend INDEVOR club’s charter to: focus on sustainable development – both social and environmental impact; collaborate closely with all INSEAD clubs and initiatives that care about sustainability; and explicitly invite NAAs and Global Clubs that want to formalize collaboration with INDEVOR to invite their members to join INDEVOR’s mailing list through MyINSEAD. See amended Charter here.
- We ratified by large majority the appointments of Ebru Carter (Secretary), Ashish Agarwal (Treasurer) and Arnaud Bertrand (Community Impact Challenge Liaison) to the INDEVOR-GIC Executive Committee, all of whom are both CIC and INDEVOR members and have been filling critical ExCo roles that were vacated during COVID.
- We provided updates on our collaborations with: CIC on annual sustainability summit and StartNOW challenge, shared back office services and merger exploration; with student clubs and HGIBs on sustainability careers mentoring; and with NAAs & GCs on joint programming.
- We planned our late fall ExCo election to fill three seats vacating at year end and agreed election with be open to all members, with promotion across the INDEVOR/Sustainability reps within each NAA or Global Club to surface nominations. Election date TBD in late November or early December.
- We brainstormed ideas for our May 2024 second annual Sustainable Business Summit and agreed it will start with a morning nature plunge in the Fontainebleau forest to ground ourselves in the stakes of biodiversity before we meet for panel discussions. Please send more ideas to [email protected].
- Looking forward, this Saturday, we’ll co-sponsor a summer jobs/internships kiosk before and after HGIBS Summit (see below), and roll out more programming with NAAs, and other GCs on creating social and environmental impact, starting with our next webinar July 6th co-sponsored with NAA Brazil on using tech to eradicate poverty (See announcement below.)
SUSTAINABILITY JOB/INTERNSHIP CORNER ON CAMPUS
HGIBS will celebrate 5 years of its Force for Good actions on Saturday 17th June from 2-6 pm in Fonty with panels (featuring some of our dear classmates) and a cocktail at the Château (line up here), and a jobs corner for sustainability internships and full-time roles for students, co-sponsored by INDEVOR global club and INDEVOR and Environment & Business student clubs.
