Private corporations have increasingly stepped forward as leaders in the realm of social and environmental sustainability. By re-thinking their operations and products, companies are actively driving change and making a positive impact. Students across Yale are eager to join this movement, as they seek to launch careers in the private sector that focus on doing good for communities, ecosystems, and the planet.
The Pathways in Corporate Sustainability series brings sustainability-oriented professionals to campus to discuss the work they do and the journeys they have taken in their careers. By sharing their stories, speakers provide a set of possible roadmaps for students to follow (or avoid). From the outside, corporate social responsibility efforts can often seem opaque, so Pathways in Corporate Sustainability aims to open a window onto what corporate sustainability roles are really like, from the big-picture strategy to the day-to-day details. Events in the series are engaging interactive, with a focus on practical career guidance.
Pathways in Corporate Sustainability is supported by CBEY as well as the Career Development Offices at both the School of Management and the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.
