CEO of Do Something.Org, Nancy Lublin helped turn a struggling organization into one of the largest and most successful Internet youth volunteer groups in the world. Leveraging social media and pop culture to help teens and early 20s “rock causes they care about,” in 2010 Do Something allowed over one million youth to take action through their programs. Nancy Lublin, founder of Dress for Success, columnist for Fast Company, and author of Zilch: The Power of Zero in Business, is one of the not-for-profit industry's most connected and globally respected leaders.
Lublin will share her insights of the power of volunteering, making a difference and Leading in a Global Society in this Spring 2011 Public Affairs Convocation Lecture.
Selected as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum, Nancy has been awarded various honors from Forbes Magazine, Ms. Magazine, and Fast Company Magazine. She has been featured on Oprah, 60 Minutes, The Today Show, CNN, and in People Magazine, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and The Economist.
By drawing on personal experience as well as her interviews with other “rock star” leaders of flourishing not-for-profits, in her book, Zilch: The Power of Zero in Business (released June 2010), she shares what for-profit businesses can learn from not-for-profits by doing more with less. Her book, DO SOMETHING. CHANGE THE WORLD! A Handbook for Young Activists, was released in November 2010.
