Join us for a chat with Meredith Ferguson, Managing Director, DoSomething Strategic

New York City, are you ready to make this the year of You? Better yet, how about the year of Us? In 2019, we’re working together to share inspiring stories of women who use their authority, influence and responsibility to DO SOMETHING incredible.

This month, we’ll talk to a phenomenal woman who has dedicated her career to activating millions of young people around the world to make impact in their communities.

As the Managing Director of DoSomething Strategic—the consulting arm of DoSomething.org, the largest global organization for young people and social impact—Meredith makes power moves by using data-driven insights from DoSomething’s 6 million members to help brands and organizations build a relationship with young people (under 30!) around purpose and social impact. Her clients include Microsoft, Nike, Foot Locker, the Malala Fund and Feeding America.

We’ll be chatting all things social enterprise, power, intersectionality, activism and more with Meredith, and delve into how she landed a career that offers her power and purpose.
