New Board Elections

The Candidates Are:

Mia White

I have been an active member of Net Impact and would love the opportunity to serve on the board so I can continue my service with this chapter. My focus for Net Impact would be to expand our professional development activities. Next year I hope to grow our partnerships with other Net Impact chapters, as well as companies in Oakland to expand employment connections for our students.

Erin Greiner

I am interested in the community building aspects and what that will look like for the members in the future. I am also interested in how Net Impact can be used as a collaborative tool for professional development. I currently am serving, consulting with Service Corps, and would love to be an asset for that initiative in the future. I feel comfortable with the other areas of need as well (although I am not that tech savvy- yet…) and can help out as needed in the future should there be better qualified candidates.

Felsha Zuschlag

I am interested in serving on the Net Impact Board because I want to become more involved with the Net Impact chapter at Mills, and I want to improve and increase my service to fellow students and the Lorry I Lokey GSB. As a potential member of the Net Impact Board, one of my primary goals is to strengthen the relationship between the student body and our Net Impact chapter to help bridge the gap between ‘membership’ and ‘action.’ I am also driven to help support our social events where students can connect with others in relaxed and fun environments. I believe that as a goal driven and engaged student with strong skills in organizational and project management, I am a good candidate for the Net Impact Board. Additionally, I believe that my collaborative and flexible work ethic in combination with strong communication skills would make me a good candidate for a role on the team.

Parisa Esmaili

If it were not for Net Impact and the Business Unusual guide, I would not be at Mills GSB today.  As an individual deeply committed to increasing social mobility and creating long-term systemic change, I am eager to bring the Net Impact mindset to the forefront of the Mills GSB by strengthening our student community, expanding professional development opportunities, and partnering with other MBA Net Impact chapters. I am grateful for having found the school through Net Impact, and am hopeful to continue strengthening Net Impact’s presence on campus.

Anna Yam

I would like to continue to preserve what Net Impact has become and continue to build it into a strong chapter.  I’m interested in making our chapter more recognized among the Oakland/Bay Area community by building more relationships with local business that have similar values/interests.  I think I would be a great candidate because I am highly motivated, collaborative, and dedicated in creating social change.  I have a solid San Francisco network and would like to bring these connections to the Mills College Net Impact chapter.

 

Cathy Hickey

I want to be a part of the leadership team of Net Impact for several reasons; to engage more with my classmates, share my network and career experiences while learning about new organizations and businesses. With over 12 years of community and economic development work experience, I have become adept at coalition building among organizations, businesses, and community groups in order to leverage existing resources to facilitate meaningful social change.  I believe my skill set and values will help build upon the successes of the Mills Net Impact chapter.

 

Pratiksha Ahuja

My interest in Net Impact is to foster a culture that strengthens professional development opportunities for students and engagement within existing networks such as our alumni base. I seek to link students to companies and opportunities that help them discover their inner potential.  I enjoy connecting with people, building partnerships, and organizing events.  I want to serve the GSB community, especially students, and I find that I can contribute most directly through involvement with Net Impact.
