Pathways to Social & Environmental Careers
CORNELL BUSINESS IMPACT SYMPOSIUM 2021
Resilience through sustainability is needed more than ever. As the line between business and social and environmental issues is disappearing, the private sector is learning how it can be a productive partner in promoting solutions to issues such a social and environmental justice, food insecurity, climate change, supply chain transparency, overconsumption, and more. They are coming to the realization that addressing these issues through core business strategies is not only good for society but also good for business. Attend one or all of the panels to hear from those leading efforts to create a more resilient world.
Are you working and trying to figure out how to pivot so you can have more impact in your job? Are you wrapping up your studies and wondering how to pursue a career with social or environmental impact? There is no single definition of a “sustainability” career nor is there a single path to follow. We will explore various pathways to finding mission-driven careers beyond non-profits, what those jobs look like, and some practical career advice.
Panelists will bring a wealth of perspectives and experiences to the conversation. Student host: Social Enterprise Group.
Time: 8:00 PM EDT
