CAREERS

Ellen Weinreb is a sustainability recruiter (and friend from business school) who maintains a thorough list of sustainability and corporate responsibility job resources on her website. For students, Net Impact's career resources are the first place to go.

Before you request informational interviews from me or anyone else, please read this spot-on advice from Josh Kaufman on "How to Ask Useful Questions."  

Issues

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is exactly what the title says and more. Run on a shoestring budget out of London with researchers all over the world, they post positive and negative stories and seek responses from the companies involved, posting in full what they receive. Their free weekly email updates are a must.

BSR and the U.N. Global Compact also have great resources on their sites.

Events

Green Money Journal maintains a comprehensive calendar of sustainability-related events.

Personal development

The OpEd Project - The social enterprise aimed at broadening the range of voices in public discourse. I signed up for a day-long seminar after reading about it in The New York Times, and found it so inspiring that I joined the advisory board and urge everyone I meet to take part.

Coming Into Your Own Women’s Retreat - A deeply thoughtful retreat for women at or nearing a point of transition in their lives. And who isn't?

Dialogos - A consulting and leadership development firm. I took their year-long flagship course in 2010-11, and recommend it to anyone seeking a transformative experience.
