Social Impact

"Some see private enterprise as a predatory target to be shot, others as a cow to be milked, but few are those who see it as a sturdy horse pulling the wagon."- Winston Churchill

"The time is always right to do what is right." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

A major focus of the Wharton School is to improve the positive social impact of business. The concept of social responsibility in business may be more dominant in sports than any other sector. From the impact of hosting global sporting events, building stadiums and arenas to midnight basketball programs designed to keep kids out of trouble, sports is involved at many levels. WSBI is focused on improving the thinking on both the social impact and philanthropy side of sports and industry participants.
