September Social Impact Breakfast


Join us at our upcoming Social Impact Breakfasts in Los Angeles. Each breakfast features a set of speakers (Impact-Makers) and an opportunity to connect with others working to make an impact.

The next Social Impact Breakfast is on Thursday, September 1, 2016 at WSP - Parsons Brinckerhoff (Citi Bank Building, 444 South Flower Street, Suite 800, 8th Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90071). Two dynamic breakfast speakers who are working to make an impact in LA will share their stories and insights into making that impact:

With more than 30 years of experience with LADWP, Mr. Adams has worked throughout the Water System and was directly involved with the planning and implementation of sweeping upgrades centered on the removal of open distribution reservoirs and changes in water treatment to meet new water quality regulations. Prior to his current appointment, he spent ten years as the Director of Water Operations in charge of the day-to-day operation and maintenance of the Los Angeles water delivery system, including the historical Los Angeles Aqueduct and other supply sources, pump stations, reservoirs, water treatment, and management of Water System properties.

- Angelica Solis-Montero, Chief Community Development Officer, Youth Policy Institute

The Community Development Division houses signature initiatives including the Los Angeles Promise Zone and key programs under the Workforce, YouthSource, Health & Wellness, and Financial Empowerment departments. Angelica works to align and coordinate the community development departments to address education, housing, and public safety issues comprehensively.

About Social Impact Breakfasts:
Everyday in LA, thousands of people are working to make the city a better place, improving the lives of fellow Angelenos. The City Impact Lab in Los Angeles brings together those working to make an impact -- in government, in the arts, in neighborhoods, in non-profits, and in business -- to share breakfast and jumpstart their effectiveness with tactics for success from impact-makers across the city.

The 75 minute breakfast is formatted to provide attendees with the opportunity to 1) connect to others who can support their work, 2) learn tactics from expert "Impact Makers," and 3) find ways to more effectively create a social impact in LA. Each breakfast includes at least 2 speakers providing their specific strategies to make an impact in LA. Space is limited to 35 attendees from a cross sector of government, non-profit, business, and arts professionals.

The Social Impact Breakfast is only $15.  Space is limited.
