Exploring the Future of Impact Work (recorded webinar)

As part of our Future of work in Social Change Career Series, PCDN recently held a webinar Geraldine Hepp, Global Community Director for the Amani Institute (bio below). The recording is below.

Everyone talks about the future of work – from the World Economic Forum to the Silicon Valley. We ask how our rapidly changing world is affecting the future of impact work: How can professionals in the private, public and third sector do what it takes to build careers that are fit for this emerging future?

In this webinar we examined some of the professional and leadership skills necessary and how you can build them. We also discussed which types of new professions will prove as essential and what support networks are out there for your professional journey.
