SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
A Panel Discussion

In this year’s Annual General Meeting of the Harvard Shanghai Club, we are excited to bring together a diverse line-up of speakers for a panel on Social Responsibility – leaders, founders and managers of charitable organizations, as well as long term veterans and practitioners of non-profit activities in China. We hope that you will participate and benefit from what should be thought-provoking discussions and personal insights on what could transform our lives, and what Harvard has always stood for - the advancement of our impact on communities around us, and the pursuit of self-renewal.
