2011 has been a busy year for IMPACT. Whether volunteering to support the Congressional Black Caucus Job Initiative, or producing an annual gala with the National Bar Association designed to increase membership and optimize the network of African Americans working to advance progressive change through juris prudence, we worked diligently to ensure that young professionals had meaningful opportunities to obtain the information and to meet the individuals that can assist in professional development and philanthropic success. In what follows, Joshua Humbert, our December IMPACT Leader of the Month discusses the importance of developing a legacy of philanthropy—especially for young professionals. We also review several of IMPACT’s initiatives from 2011 before previewing next year’s programmatic focus on Political Engagement. Over the coming year we seek to ensure that all young professionals have the resources needed to be politically informed and engaged. Be sure to visit IMPACT for additional information on these initiatives and how you can get involved.
In whatever you do, ask yourself, are you making an IMPACT on your world? You should!
