**SOLD OUT** A life of purpose: Do well while doing good **SOLD OUT **
Don't miss this extraordinary panel of Brown alumni, all distinguished in the field of Social Impact, who'll talk about their work – and how they are succeeding through doing good.
Inspired to change the world? Curious how to transition from an unfulfilling career? Interested in how social innovations can make a difference?
Join the Brown Club in New York as five alumni panelists talk through their experiences starting companies, leveraging private-sector experiences, and leading social good organizations in order to better the world we live in. Guests will then have the opportunity to pose questions to the panelists about their careers and doing well by doing good.
