This is our next in the series – requested by our loyal Electric Ladies Podcast listeners – for a collection of career advice from a handful of our various guests. The last question I ask in every interview is for career advice for midcareer women who want to make a difference. Is that you?
If you want to make a difference with your career, and especially if you work in energy, climate, sustainability corporate responsibility or ESG (environment, social governance), or want to work in these fields, this advice will be especially relevant to you.
This week, you’ll hear career advice from:
- Meredith Shields, Managing Director, Head of Citi Impact Fund
- Aimee Christensen, CEO/Founder of Christensen Global, of the Sun Valley Forum, and of the Sun Valley Center Institute
- Jane Poynter, CEO/Cofounder of Space Perspective
- Jacqui Patterson, Founder/Executive Director of the Chisholm Legacy Project, A Resource Hub
- Sarah Cumbers, Ph.D., Director of Evidence & Insight at Lloyd’s Register Foundation
Here’s a hint:
“People are looking for community, so even if you think you might be the only one who’s raising this issue,…you will find your people. And if you don’t speak your truth, if you don’t ask the hard question, you won’t find the people who are looking to align with that aggressive leadership and trust your gut on that. So trust your gut, whether it’s about a new job, about a direction we need to be going in, even if it feels a little bit lonely, because… You’ll be proven. People will find you and want to collaborate with you.” Aimee Christensen on Electric Ladies Podcast
