With Roots at Microsoft, the Global Impact Collective’s Journey is Shared With Company Alumni Around the World

Microsoft Alumni Network profiles four Global Impact Collective founders

With Roots at Microsoft, the Global Impact Collective’s Journey is Shared With Company Alumni Around the World

Global Impact Collective co-founder, James Bernard, and founding advisors, Tom Bouchard, Don Coyner, and Steve Kaneko were recently featured on the Microsoft Alumni Network website. The Microsoft Alumni Network is an impressive worldwide community of alumni who share a common experience of having worked at Microsoft. Founded in 1995 by a few alumni who wanted to stay connected, the Alumni Network today is a member organization representing more than 48,000 alumni in 54 countries.

 

The profile piece, written by Tina Ferguson, details the creation of the Global Impact Collective, which began with a conversation between James and Don at the Xbox 20th anniversary event in 2021. After learning of James’ work in the social impact sector after leaving Microsoft in 2015, Don, Tom, and Steve were inspired to apply their Microsoft expertise and deep design knowledge toward social good. They continued the discussion, drew in co-founder Carey Renn (former Sr. Director of Technology Development at Vulcan, Inc.), and the rest is history.

 

Today the Global Impact Collective assists various clients in tackling food, health, and environmental challenges. Our clients include Fortune 50 food and beverage companies, global NGO and humanitarian organizations, and government institutions.
