Careers with Impact

Careers with Impact: How to make a difference and drive social change, Tuesday 25th April 2017, 6:30pm – 8:30pm, Peter Richards Room

There is a growing global community of students seeking careers that are about more than ‘just’ earning a living – a community that wants to drive social and environmental change and have a lasting impact in the world. But what are the different career options and routes for doing so?

This event will bring together a panel of speakers with extensive experience as social change makers in the corporate world, in local government, and in the social sector. The speakers will draw on their own careers to explore the opportunities and constraints for social innovation and change from contrasting perspectives.

This will be followed by a Q&A session in which we will consider the potential and limitations of different career trajectories for making an impact.
