A Conversation with CBEY Alumni Visiting Expert Matt Thurston

Please join us for a webinar with Alumni Visiting Expert, Matt Thurston. Matt is Director of Sustainability at REI, where he supports a team of sustainability experts who lead the organization’s stewardship and impact strategy. They engage across the co-op’s lines of business—overseeing labor rights in international supply chains, improving energy efficiency in retail operations, developing perspectives on key social and environmental challenges, and everything in between.

During this hour-long webinar, Matt will discuss his career journey, his current role, and how his time at Yale prepared him for this work. There will be plenty of time for Q&A, so bring your burning questions!
