The Haas School's Center for Responsible Business and Lester Center for Entrepreneurship are co-hosting a pre-DVD release screening of the film Fixing the Future at 8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24, in the Wells Fargo Room.
Fixing Our Future, which premiered in theaters in July, highlights communities and entrepreneurs who are employing sustainable models such as local business alliances, community banking, and worker cooperatives to create jobs, build prosperity, and reinvent the American economy.
The screening will be followed by a speaker from a successful Bay Area social enterprise, who will share reaction to the film and how it relates to their organization's story. The speaker also will share experiences and advice for converting individual passions into successful, scalable, sustainable enterprises.
Dinner will be provided at the free event, which is part of the Center for Responsible Business' Peterson Series.
