Students - Student Sessions

Career Expo



Over 55 sessions for undergrads and grad students to discover and deepen their path to purpose!

Leading with the Triple Bottom Line

Corporations are key stakeholders when it comes to both the challenges and solutions in social and environmental impact. Nearly all major companies are working in this space, but there are only a few key leaders. Hear from the people driving CSR and sustainability forward in their own companies. They will share what it takes to integrate impact metrics and values across the company, and offer advice for how you might carry on their work in the future.

Empowering Undergrads to Embrace Purpose

As an undergrad, it can be very overwhelming to know which career path to pursue when everyone is going in different directions. You know what you you like, and a few types of jobs have piqued your interest, but you are not sure how to choose. In this session, you will answer tough questions to help guide you through your career decisions and walk away with an understanding of what you need to achieve a career with purpose.

Civic Engagement to Drive Social Justice

Local communities and governments need bright young minds to help chart their future, but what does it take to create authentic, inclusive, and sustainable civic engagement? This session will bring together leaders to discuss the need for engagement at the community level, and share their own approaches to promote social justice. After the discussion, you will explore these pressing topics in small groups and share their thoughts with the rest of the group. You will walk away with a better understanding of how you can take action in your own community.

Please view our entire schedule for all sessions.
