Volume 4 - Week of March 1, 2021

Dear GCNYC Community,

I hope you are all safe, happy and healthy.

I am excited to share below many great opportunities for this installment of our Career Services newsletter. Please take a look at the highlight on impact-focused job boards which will help you in your targeted search.

I would like share with you a great new opportunity for networking and community from WAVE (Women's Association of Venture and Equity). WAVE has launched a new series of “Open Houses” for women considering a career in alternative investments or who are early in their careers in impact investment. The goal of these sessions is to help facilitate networking and share information. The next open session will be offered on Friday, March 5 at 9:30 am – 10:30 am EST and the format will be an open session where Harisha Koneru Haigh, Managing Director, Private Investments & Real Assets at the Northwestern University Investment Office will answer questions. To participate in the Office Hour on March 5, please register here via Zoom:
 
Lastly, we have an absolutely amazing Career Conversation scheduled with Elizabeth Pulos, GCNYC alumni and Social Compliance and Sustainability Lead at Macy's, for next Thursday, March 11. I'd love to see you there! See details below.

Have a great week ahead.

Warmly,

Michelle Gabriel

Sometimes we just learn best by example. In our Career Conversations series, we engage with impact + sustainability professionals, with particular focus on our GCNYC alumni network, in order to illustrate through example what working in impact + sustainability looks like, break down the intentional and accidental steps that lead to their current position, and have an open dialog for your questions.
