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 Business and the Environment 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, roles at the intersection of business and the environment can be difficult to navigate. This Pathways series aims to give students an idea of the array of opportunities that exist, 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 is supported by CBEY as well as the Career Development Offices at both the School of Management and the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.
Corporate sustainability can mean various different programs, jobs and skills to different people in the field of business and the environment.
