Preparing the Next Generation of Sustainability Leaders

The demand for sustainability leaders is growing as more and more businesses are recognizing the impact on the triple bottom line. But, what does it really mean to have a career in sustainability? Aside from joining a company’s formal sustainability team, where are there opportunities within a company for people interested in making an impact? What kind of talent are companies seeking?

Join us on December 11th as we discuss how best to prepare the next generation of sustainability leaders. Hear from a panel of sustainability experts on industry trends, career opportunities and ways to influence change from within. We’ll also explore how students and career-changers are preparing to make an impact.
