Description




Carving Out A Successful Career in Sustainability

What does it take to enjoy a meaningful career that makes a difference?


Come join us on the 15th March as we reflect on what values are driving your career choices and working life.


Without understanding what is really important to us (our values) and how we need to experience them, life, especially work, can easily just 'happen to us', rather than it being something we are able to actively carve our and create for ourselves. If we are to enjoy a meaningful career that makes a real difference, we need to reflect and understand these vital navigation tools to a flourishing, sustainable career.



We'll be hearing from some fantastic speakers, who will share their career stories, drivers and challenges. Using their insights as our starting point, and referencing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we'll then zoom in on what you really need, inviting you to learn from and with each other. You'll come away from this event energised and inspired, with new self insights and a plan of action for the forthcoming year.
