Back in my GWU days, I was very involved in the then-emerging field of social entrepreneurship. I co-founded The GW Social Enterprise Forum, helped launch the GW chapter of Compass Fellows, interned with Ashoka and Social Enterprise Associates, and read SocialEarth like it was my job. So I jumped at the chance to attend this year’s AshokaU Exchange as a representative of Leadership ExCHANGE because it means I get to reconnect with some of my old contacts, chat about social enterprise for three days, and network my booty off. I <3 networking (no surprise to anyone who knows me)- but not the tacky kind of networking where you try to beat your personal record for how many business cards you can pass out in a matter of minutes. Real relationship building! But I digress
And a bonus? I get to go to San Diego for the first time! Gorgeous year-round weather, the original Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, and Balboa Par- as we speak, I’m headed your way!
Have you ever been to San Diego? What suggestions do you have for me?
