Seth Green, Founding Director Baumhart Center for Social Enterprise and Responsibility at Loyola University Chicago

Join us for this learning session and discussion about why businesses are focusing on social responsibility more than ever and how that focus is helping us all work towards the greater good. Today, corporate responsibility means more than just giving: companies are creating cultures around shared values and improving profitability at the same time. Seth Green, Founding Director of Loyola’s Baumhart Center, will discuss the approach corporations are taking to incorporate social impact.

Biography of Seth Green
Seth Green is the Founding Director of the Baumhart Center for Social Enterprise and Responsibility at Loyola University Chicago. In its first year, the Center supported more than 4,000 leaders and students through learning gatherings and educational workshops that explored how to harness the positive power of business to build a better world. Green is also an Executive Lecturer at Loyola, where he teaches courses on nonprofit leadership and social entrepreneurship.

Seth joined Loyola after 15 years of leading institutions at the forefront of fighting poverty and expanding opportunity. Most recently, he served as executive director of Youth & Opportunity United (Y.O.U.), a Chicagoland nonprofit that prepares low-income youth for post-secondary and life success. During his tenure, he spearheaded an expansion of Y.O.U.'s programs from serving 450 youth in 2010 to 1,600 in 2017. He also envisioned and led a $16.4 million fundraising campaign to build a new Y.O.U. youth center and financial endowment.

Seth began his career as a consultant at McKinsey and Company, where he worked with private sector clients on strategic planning and change management. A recipient of McKinsey’s Community Fellowship, he spent one year of his time at the firm supporting nonprofit clients, including the Gates Foundation and United Way.

Seth is a sought after speaker on social entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility, nonprofit leadership, and cross-sector partnership, having spoken on these topics at the U.S. House, U.S. Senate, World Bank, United Nations, and other leading institutions. He served for numerous years as a discussion facilitator for the Clinton Global Initiative and he was a plenary speaker at the 2011 White House-sponsored conference on Connecting Communities for the Common Good. Before joining Loyola, Seth was also a lecturer at Northwestern University, where he taught courses on nonprofit management and social impact leadership.

Seth is a frequent media contributor, having served as a guest on C-SPAN's Washington Journal, CNN, and MSNBC, and having written op-eds for the Christian Science Monitor and Miami Herald. In addition, his work has been featured by hundreds of publications, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Chronicle of Higher Education. For his social innovation leadership, Utne Reader named Seth one of 50 “Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World.”

Seth has a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University, master’s degrees from the London School of Economics and Oxford University on a Marshall Scholarship, and a law degree from Yale University. He currently serves on the Social Impact Advisory Panel of the Chicago Community Trust, on the Impact Investing Advisory Council of the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago, on the Council of Advisors of Loyola Limited, and as a member of the Economic Club of Chicago.
