What is Meaningful Work?
An expert panel discuss the nature of “meaningful work” in an event to launch a new series of LSE student workshops to explore meaning in the world of work. Is it possible to reconcile your values with the demanding profit-driven structures of modern professional life? Are some sectors more meaningful than others or does every career have the potential for meaningful work? How can our values and/or beliefs best inform our work and make a positive difference in the world?
