Located in the finance capital of the world, this industry-leading event provides a unique opportunity to tap into the vibrant ecosystem of capital for impact through the lens of philanthropy, impact investing, ESG, and social venture and business examples. Social impact leaders in business, government, nonprofit, and philanthropy will speak to how they are changing the way we think about how capital is sourced and used to generate sustainable solutions to global, systemic challenges.

We will bring together industry leaders, investors, philanthropists, professionals, faculty, students, and alumni to share best practices and engender new ideas surrounding the intersection of capital and society. Speaker presentations will catalyze conversations of change and embolden a generation to take risks in order to create a world in which everyone, regardless of where they were born, has the equal opportunity to succeed in creating a better life for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Alumni Spotlight: Miracle Allums LMSW ’15 Launches Virtual Support Service for Mental Health Professionals

The Office of Career Services and Leadership Management would like to extend a warm congratulations to CSSW Alumna Miracle Allums, LMSW on the recent launch of her new business, Mhoodle, a virtual support service for Mental Health Professionals!

Miracle founded Mhoodle after noticing a gap and need for more holistic support for mental health professionals, particularly those in private practice, having seen challenges through own experience as a psychotherapist in schools, hospitals, private practice, collaborative care, and international support services. By providing a platform where clinicians can have all of their administrative, operations, and marketing needs taken care of, she hopes to help them stay focused on the work they love and are purposed to do — providing stellar mental health support to the community.

A 2015 graduate, Miracle is also a fierce advocate for holistic wellness. She became a Labor and Postpartum Doula, having completed her doula training with Ancient Song Doula Services, an organization that primarily serves woman of color throughout the New York City Area. She is also a Reiki II Practitioner and has trained with Reiki Master Jean Bromage, becoming a practitioner of both western and eastern lineages. of Reiki.

Please join us in celebrating her achievements!
