A non-profit sector event sponsored by SOM-AA Boston, featuring an information session about the SOM Community Consulting team, a talk by Patricia Johnson ‘02 on her experiences establishing and running Game Theory Academy, and networking. On Monday, October 24th, approximately 20 Yale School of Management alums and guests gathered at Jose McIntyre's Pub in Boston for an evening of nonprofit learning and networking. Patricia Johnson (Class of 2002) spoke about her experience with founding and leading Game Theory Academy, a California-based nonprofit that is working to improve the decision-making skills of at-risk youth. Using the principles of game theory, GTA has reached 350 young adults through its classes since 2009. The group also had the opportunity to learn about Community Consulting Teams of Boston from one of its board members. CCT is an all-volunteer organization of MBA graduates that provides pro-bono consulting services to Boston-area nonprofits. While several Yale SOM graduates have participated in CCT in the past, this year we are planning to form an all-Yale team.
