    14. 14. Members in action Caren Holzman Director of Certification TransFair USA “ Networking via Net Impact helped me to sustain myself through paid projects while I looked for a full-time position. Not only did I make money and build my skill set and resume, I also made great friends” Sanjay Wagle Vice President, Clean Tech Vantage Point Venture Partners “ I went to business school because I felt that the best way to address the world’s social and environmental problems was through the power of business. Socially responsible business is still a small world – I keep bumping into Net Impact people everywhere. The Net Impact network has played a huge role in my career development.” Kyle Schott Manager, Environment & Social Responsibility McDonald’s Corporation “ Often times large companies make you feel like you’re on your own; Net Impact makes you feel like you have a community. Going to a conference and seeing 1,300 people who are the next wave of leadership, running companies and being passionate about these issues, it’s really inspiring.”
