Social Enterprise Alumni Advisory Council

Council Purpose

With the world at an inflection point, the work of Miller Center is more important than ever. Seeking to align the “voice of the customer” more closely with our work, we have convened the Social Enterprise Alumni Advisory Council to provide feedback and direction on strategy and tactics that will help to inform our choices and bring about our most ambitious outcomes. The council provides an ongoing sounding board and focus group — representing the social enterprises we work with globally and providing customer feedback in many areas, including alumni support, investment facilitation, programming, and student engagement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible for the SE Alumni Advisory Council?

Graduates of Miller Center programs who lead social enterprises that prioritize women’s economic empowerment or climate resilience and are scalable and/or replicable. Priority consideration is given to local leaders. Invitations extended are not transferable to other staff within the organization.

How many Social Entrepreneurs will be on the Council?

The council is composed of 6–8 members who are Miller Center alumni. If a specific need or point of view is identified that cannot or best not be represented by an alum, we may grant exceptions.

How long is the term of service for the Social Enterprise Alumni Advisory Council?

Each member will serve up to a two-year term, though the first term (2021) may be staggered, with some members serving up to three years, to allow for an overlap of previous and new members in the future.
