Kenbe Fem -- Film Screening and Discussion
April 19, 2017 from 6:00-9:00pm at Impact Hub DC
April 20, 2017 from 6:00-9:00pm at WeWork (K Street)
Set in the wake of the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Kenbe Fem follows David Pierre-Louis in his search to find his mother after the tragedy. But even more - it’s a story of enduring love, strength, and resilience. As audiences witness this incredible story of hope, learn how this tragedy is transformed into a call for action - to work in concert with Haitian communities towards sustainable prosperity in the country’s economy.
Join us for a screening of the film and discussion of entrepreneurship and sustainability in Haiti with Kay Tita, a Net Impact partner organization in Haiti. Please register on the following Eventbrite pages for the screening on April 19th or April 20th.
Celebrity Networking 2017
Monday April 24, 2017 from 6:00-8:30pm @ Busboys and Poets
Are you job seeking? Looking to make a career change into the sustainability field? Or just interested in seeing what the local sustainability community is up to? Come network with well-established sustainability professionals in the community in DCNI’s annual Celebrity Networking Event. This has always been one of our most popular events with our membership, and we are pleased to host it again this year with a new line-up of guest sustainability professionals ("celebrities"). They will be delighted to share with you their experiences in the field, the latest challenges they are facing, career advice for those looking to get in, and all-around engaging conversation.
The format will be in the form of speed networking, where a group of participants will engage with one celebrity for 10 minutes, then go to the next celebrity for the following round. At the end of six rounds, there will be time for open mingling amongst the celebrities and participants. This event is a fabulous way to get a leg up on your sustainability-related networking without the pressure of a formal networking process.
Please register for access to the event and find full bios for our celebrity participants on Eventbrite.
