Experts agree that climate change is likely to have a profound effect on the Earth’s environments, economies, and peoples, and yet most of us don’t work in fields that try to address the issue and make a change. In this Jam session, Cynthia Wang will discuss how to take practical steps toward applying the business and technical skills often honed in our for-profit professions to a non-profit setting, and be a part of a greater cause.

Topics include:

  • Ways to make a positive and personal impact on reversing climate change without changing jobs
  • Practical advice on how to balance volunteer work with your day job
  • Possible entry points into the non-profit sector

Cynthia Wang is the Director of Market Development, IBM Global Services. Parallel to her career in the tech industry, she has been a part of the environmental and conservation movement for more than 10 years. She is the Board President of Seattle Audubon Society, part of the global Audubon network whose mission is to protect birds and their natural habitats.
