On Friday, October 23, KFBS hosted the 8th Annual Careers in Sustainability Forum. The forum consisted of a series of panels around numerous types of functional roles in the world of sustainability. Each panel consisted of roughly six practitioners. The roles covered by panels included:
• Renewable Energy
• Green Building
• Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital
• Sustainabiltiy Consulting
• Corporate Social Responsibility
It was especially encouraging to see that individuals can impact environmental and social bottom lines in a host of different roles. In other words, it is possible to get the type of job you want, and have it be sustainably focused too. This is a hopeful proposition for anyone entering the sustainability focused.
