NYC and NY state are taking many steps toward greening our city, and to ensure they happen there are a slew of government agencies who are involved in carrying them out. Different public agencies focus on different actions and it can be difficult to see how to get involved and which agency would be best suited for your transferable skills and career transition.
Come join us at GROHE Live! for a panel discussion + Q&A from individuals who work at the nexus of government and sustainability. This is your opportunity to ask the professionals about their career history and how you too could possibly transition your career into green-related policy work.
