Speaker event - Mark Johnson, founder of UserVoice, "Only Offenders Can Stop Re-Offending"
23 January 2013, 17.30 - 18.30, Innovation Academy, Foster Place, College Green, Dublin 2
The School of Business, in association with the Innovation Academy, Enactus and our partners Ashoka Ireland are delighted to announce the first TCD Social Entrepreneurship Speaker Series event for 2013! Mark Johnson, founder of UserVoice.org has a history of serious crime, homelessness and drug abuse. He went through rehabilitation at the age of 29, and since then has become a leading figure in the criminal justice reform movement. Mark's organisation, User Voice, exists to reduce offending. Their work is led and delivered by ex-offenders who foster dialogue between users and providers of services within the criminal justice system. Through democratically elected prison and probation councils, his work is providing ways to enable unheard voices to make a difference, convincing policy-makers and showing dramatic impact. User Voice believes “only offenders can stop re-offending.” Mark's autobiography, Wasted, is a best seller, and he is a regular columnist with the Guardian newspaper. Mark is currently in the process of bringing User Voice to the Irish Prison System.
All Welcome! For more information contact: Dr Denise Crossan, Assistant Professor in Social Entrepreneurship, School of Business, firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Centre Welcomes New Interns
The Centre ranks were augmented in June 2011 when four former members of the 'Managing Nonprofit Organisations' (MNO) undergraduate course joined us as programme interns. They worked to complete an annual review of the MNO course, co-author a journal article and assist with preparation of a book proposal. In addition, Jennifer Finn was seconded for the first week of her internship to a neighbouring arts organisation to prepare a report on fundraising for the organisation's Director.
