Are you looking for a job that reflects your values?
Do you want to contribute to social and environmental justice?
Are you driven by a desire to drive positive change everyday?

Our three brilliant speakers, Antonella Notari, Alia Poonawala and Riswana Soundardjee will share their stories of how they successfully transitioned from the private sector to the social benefit sector, from field to home, from large institution to local foundation, etc. They will bring to light the challenges, opportunities and strategies they employed to build a meaningful professional life.
