On October 8, 2014, PlantBased Solutions Founder and CEO David Benzaquen will lead a workshop on choosing a career to maximize social impact as part of the NYU Reynolds R.E.A.L. (Realistic Entrepreneurial Actionable Learning) Workshop Series.
Doing good is about more than just intentions. With the lines blurring between the nonprofit, private and public sectors, how does one choose the best career path to truly make a difference? In this workshop, attendees will examine the metrics and factors one can use to measure the social impact of various career choices and review the strengths and weaknesses of various career paths. Each attendee will use a worksheet and small group discussion to answer questions that will lead them to further clarity on the best path to achieve his or her personal, professional and social change goals.
David Benzaquen is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of PlantBased Solutions, a brand management and marketing agency building the market for plant-based products to address some of the world’s most urgent health, environmental and ethical challenges. Prior to launching his business, David worked in the nonprofit and government sectors as a lobbyist, fundraising consultant, community organizer, direct service provider and legislative aide. David holds a master’s degree in nonprofit management from The New School for Social Engagement and a bachelor’s degree from American University in Political Science.
