Sustainability Careers Workshop (Mid-career/Transitioning) 8/24

Sustainability Careers Workshop(s)

Part I: Mid-career/Transitioning

In response to popular demand, this workshop will assist participants with the entire process of entering the sustainability sector in the Chicago area. Topics include: learning about the sector, being prepared, finding opportunities, skills/education required for a sustainability-related position, rationale for entering this field, networking, and securing (informational) interviews.

Space is intentionally limited to allow for questions/interaction. For participants that have been in the workforce for more than 4 years.

Led by broadly knowledgeable local sustainability leader, Peter Nicholson, Executive & Creative Director of the Foresight Design Initiative.

We are offering a package discount for those who register for both Parts I & II.

Part II: Sustainability Careers Workshop (Follow-up to the Part I Entry and Mid-career Workshops)
Offered on Tue 10/13.

This session is the next step in Foresight’s Sustainable Careers Workshop series. This workshop will be a more in–depth and participatory seminar for past Part I workshop participants. Attendees will jointly review the latest edition of Foresight’s Sustainable Careers Resource Guide discussing key entries; share experiences regarding their self-assessment, educational undertakings, as well as ways in which they have gained experience in the field. Intended to provide the information and insight necessary to empower attendees to overcome barriers to their job search and/or transition, this workshop will dedicate significant time to indentifying these obstructions and exploring strategies for overcoming them.
Space is intentionally limited to 16 participants to allow for questions/interaction.
