Join us for our May 2020 Green Careers webinar for a panel discussion + Q&A with individuals who work in sustainability that do not have STEM degrees.
So you don’t have a STEM degree, but you want a career in sustainability? Green careers in New York are expected to increase in demand over the coming years. In the US and globally, companies are moving forward with their commitments to sustainability, creating opportunities across many industries that will draw from a variety of disciplines, and policy experts continue to plan for a fossil-free future.
Come learn from experts on sustainability careers, and hear from professionals who have transitioned into green careers without a science or engineering background.
Eban Goodstein – Director of Graduate Programs in Sustainability at Bard College, with an M ED degree in Environmental Ed, an MBA in Sustainability and an MS in Environmental Policy. The sustainability programs at Bard mostly focus on non-STEM undergraduate majors to prepare them for careers in this space.
Betsy Harbison – B2B Marketer, she made the switch into sustainability when she became the Director of Marketing for Bright Power in October 2017. Prior to that, she worked at a boutique management consulting firm focused on increasing employee satisfaction and performance (marketing and communications functional role) and the American Cancer Society (fundraising and event planning functional role).
Judith Albert – Adjunct Professor at the New School teaching Corporate Sustainability & Corporate Social Responsibility. Prior to making the transition into sustainability, she worked in investment banking in Latin America, New York and London.
Tom Sahagian – Building energy efficiency expert, he has worked for over 35 years in New York City and Westchester focusing on sustainability. Tom received his college degree in Journalism and is a testament that educational background should not serve as a barrier to a sustainability career.
