Virtual Thematic Event: Careers in Sustainability – Stories from Sustainability Professionals

31 May, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Are you interested in a career in sustainability? Would you like to create positive change in your job? Or are you simply interested in learning about other people’s sustainability journey?

Demand for sustainable careers is on the rise. A trend that will only increase this year. We currently see an unprecedented number of companies and institutions making commitments to cut emissions or become more sustainable. All of them will have to come up with concrete action plans to make those commitments a reality soon and they won’t be able to do it alone!

At this thematic event we’re joined by the MBA program of the University of St. Gallen to get inspired by and for careers in sustainability. Together, we will address questions, such as: What does a career in sustainability look like? What possibilities are there? How do I educate myself and take the first steps? How can I get the courage to do what I know to be right?

In this interactive online event, we will hear stories from people who work in sustainability, who come from different backgrounds and work in different fields / sectors, including large companies, financial institutions, NGOs and startups. The guest speakers will share their reasons for choosing that path, the hurdles and challenges that they faced and how they managed to overcome them.

Our Key-Note Speaker:

  • Karin Reiter, Global Head of ESG/Sustainability at The Adecco Group

Our Panelists:

  • Gwen Jettain, Co-Founder at Pelt8
  • Heather Kirk, ESG Specialist at Vontobel Asset Management
  • Carmen Murer, Head Corporate Communication at Synhelion SA
  • Antoine Predour, Head of Climate Finance at responsAbility
  • Carmen Sprus, Project Lead @EY Sustainability & EYCarbon
  • Valerian Stalder, Sustainability Services Co-Lead at BDO

You will have a chance to meet the speakers in breakout groups and make connections with other people looking to move into the sustainability space and with sustainability professionals.

We are delighted to partner with HSG’s MBA programme to inspire students and professionals to pursue a career with a positive impact. Join us on May 31st, 16.00 – 18.00, online and get inspired by our guest speakers!
