One Wesleyan student and four alumni participated in the Echoing Green Conference Nov. 17 in San Francisco, Calif. Echoing Green invests in and supports outstanding emerging social entrepreneurs to launch new organizations that deliver bold, high-impact solutions. The organization also remains committed to very early stage support of new and untested ideas in the hands of visionary social entrepreneurs.

Participants included Lara Galinsky ’96, senior vice president of Echoing Green; Kennedy Odede ’12 and Jessica Posner ’09 from Shining Hope for Communities; and Bonnie Oliva ’04 and Shivani Siroy ’04 from Inveture Fund.

Lara Galinsky, who sits on the advisory board of the Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship at Wesleyan, is featured in an Echoing Green bio online here.
