Creating Sustainability Impact for Professionals, Organisations and the Society: Career Talk cum Admission Briefing for Master of Social Sciences in Sustainability Leadership and Governance
7th February 2022 (Monday)
18:30 - 20:30

Why embracing sustainability enhances your career: Align your interests, strengths, and values, for ongoing learning and making a positive impact!

 

The modern organization requires deeper understanding of its dependency on the environment, and most jobs will need this knowledge given the growing economic imperative for ‘green jobs’. Further, acknowledging the need for culture change, advocacy and diplomacy skills will support wider organizational skills that on the one hand develop people to their fullest, while on the other, building organization-wide capacity for the strategic demands for sustainability. As consumer demand for responsible products, services, and experiences grow, employers are increasingly expecting their employees to drive the organizational sustainability agenda.

Join us for a discussion with our alumni who will share their experience of incorporating a sustainability-focused lens in their workplace and decision-making. We will explore how both technical skills mixed with the people-oriented and empathetic leadership skills are required for organizations to develop opportunities for positive societal impact.

Date: 7 February 2022 (Tuesday)
Time: 6:30 – 8:30 pm
Format: Online via ZOOM
