This will be a presentation on the range of businesses types that engage in socially and environmentally responsible business practices, from those that simply donate money to support good causes to ventures that are called social entrepreneurial organizations because they apply business strategies to self-sustain their operations so they can fulfill an explicit and major part of their operating mission of solving or addressing societal problems.  We will also hear from some of those organizations themselves.
