Through the Community Outreach Initiative (COI), join teams of 8-10 MBA's to troubleshoot some of the most pressing issues facing the not-for-profit community from corporate partnerships to program redesign and marketing strategy. Facilitated by consultants from McKinsey and Company, COI provides an opportunity not just to meet the organizations that help support our movement, but to provide key insights to help solve complex problems within our community organizations. The session will include a facilitated brain-storming session as well as a report-out from all participating groups.
