Selflessness is profitable.
You could have a boring job like everyone else — or make even more doing something that you love. Something that brings you purpose. Something that actually solves our problems.
Careers are opportunities to tackle pressing world problems and we're not talking about the pay cuts and slow pace of the non-profit sector. Business is one of the most powerful tools we have to ignite rapid & systemic change. Come talk with Josh Tetrick, a UM Law alum disrupting the food system as CEO of Hampton Creek—a Silicon Valley company pioneering in the food space.
He'll talk about what it looks like for a company to tackle a pressing global problem while turning a profit and the concrete steps he took to build Hampton Creek--all without any background in food or business. He'll follow by workshopping how you can weave what you care about with what you're good at to build a lucrative career.
