Join the Graduate Career Center for a Cast Your Network featuring a panel of business leaders from the Sustainability sector. Business sustainability incorporates green business practices into the daily operations of businesses. Roles in business sustainability will only become more essential as time goes on. Join professionals in the industry to hear about their companies, how they broke into the field, and potential future career paths. 

This is a great opportunity to hear from industry professionals about their experience in the field, and advice they have to offer on business sustainability and careers.  

Cast Your Network Nights are networking events with industry leaders. Each event is in two parts:

  • Part 1: Hear first-hand from industry leaders about their experience in the industry through a brief presentation, industry insights, and advice gained throughout their career journey. 
  • Part 2: Open networking between graduate students, alumni, and the presenters.
