The Professionals Program


The Inspiring Capital Professionals Program is for working professionals who are:

  • exploring the alignment of their personal sense of purpose with their careers,
  • seeking an increased understanding of the social impact sector, and
  • pursuing the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals


$995, including training sessions and additional membership benefits.


All training sessions will be held in Manhattan in corporate or nonprofit partners’ space.


This program is designed specifically for Millennials and Boomers who are in a transitional phase of their careers-- either considering their next steps professionally or looking to maximize their impact in their current role.

All professionals are welcome to apply. 

No sector experience or previous knowledge necessary. Professionals from all industries and backgrounds are welcome.


You’ll launch with a 5-session experiential learning program in which you’ll learn about the different types of organizations making an impact, discover the trends, topics, and challenges that are most current in the sector, and gain some tools to bring impact back to your organization. We will bring in guest speakers from sustainability, impact investing, corporate social responsibility, and other relevant topic areas

Specifically, you’ll walk away with:

  • Understanding of your professional and personal potential for impact
  • More effective leadership, analysis, and professional contributions to social sector organizations
  • Improved communication and design-thinking skill and a deeper sense of purpose
  • A cohort of like-minded, inter-generational peers from across careers and industries

Then, upon completion of the program, you’ll be granted the following membership benefits:

  •  30% off IC quarterly networking events and panel discussions, with professionals from across the social sector (nonprofits, foundations, social ventures, corporates) 
  • Weekly email of resources, readings, and events
  • Access to gated LinkedIn group
  • Potential access to consulting externships
  • Option to participate in at least one client hackathon per year


  • You'll also have the option to participate in 200-level deep dive courses over the course of the next year, and you'll receive a 30% discount off of tuition. 


What we're hearing

A great way to help organize your thoughts around next steps in your career and how to approach the search. I have concrete steps that I will take when I leave.

IC brings together people who care about social impact/community change, but may be coming at it from different vantage points and sectors - kind of unique!
