We have closed online registration for this workshop, however, if you would still like to register, please email

Please note: This workshop will take place in three parts. Attendees do NOT need to participate in all three (though we certainly recommend it!), but our registration is all-in-one.

This workshop is perfect for humanists who have an entrepreneurial streak and want to make a difference in the world. In the course of three 90-minute seminars, we will explore how to envision, plan, launch, and run your own mission-driven business or nonprofit. Packed with practical tips and focused on the actual nitty-gritty of building a mission-driven organization, this workshop is a perfect reminder that the best career may be the one you build for yourself.
