Fireside Chat with Nate Garvis
Start Date: 11/26/2012Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 11/26/2012End Time: 8:00 PM

Event Description:
Join us for a fireside chat with Nate Garvis, a Babson Social Innovation Fellow. He just released a great video about social innovation for his newly released book Naked Civics . 

His book explores Civic Design as a practice that focuses on "the common good outcomes of our communities by pulling upon all of the institutional tools in our communities, beyond our traditional sole focus on government alone. Regulating our communities into better health and prosperity, writ large, is more than passing laws and warring over angry left vs. right politics."

As a former Vice President of Government Affairs and Senior Public Affairs Officer for Target Corporation, one of the world’s largest retail operations, Nate Garvis has sat at the intersection of Fortune 100 business, government, politics, civics, media, health care, public safety, academia, philanthropy and non-governmental organizations for over twenty-five years. He is a member of a number of academic, think-tank, business and non-profit boards throughout the country, including Allina Health, the Public Affairs Council and the College of Arts and Sciences at St. Thomas University.

He also serves as Senior Fellow and Social Innovator in Residence and Design Counsel at the Social Innovation Lab at Babson College. He is one of the co-founders of DoTopia, a social enterprise that is creating lifestyle philanthropy for all as well as a co-founder of Studio/E, an entrepreneurial experience for top-tier leaders conducted quarterly out of the historic James J. Hill Library.
