Green Networking Night

February 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Thursday, February 13th is Emory’s 12th Annual Green Networking Night, a festive evening planned for Emory and Oxford College undergrad and graduate students to meet numerous inspiring “green” alumni and friends who make an impact in unique professional roles within the environmental/sustainability sector.

Who can attend? Emory students from any year, major, or discipline with an interest in making an impact in environment and sustainability as areas of career focus. Whether you are simply curious to explore the ways you can contribute your unique strengths, or are someone who is already blazing a trail in the realm of environment and sustainability, this event is for you.

What is the format? Casual networking, conversations with new and old friends, and good eats. This is not a career fair filled with long rows of tables and brochures; instead, we make it easier to relate and meet professionals doing the kind of work you admire without the intimidation factor. (Several alumni and professional guests are veterans who have come back for many years and love talking to Emory students).

What kind of “green” alumni and professionals will you meet? Guests often work in the following areas:

– environmental law
– corporate sustainability
– federal / state / local government and policy
– conservation and restoration
– public/environmental health
– renewable energy
– environmental consulting
– urban planning
– community building and social justice
– sustainable agriculture
– environmental advocacy
– green architecture and construction
– nonprofit sector
– environmental engineering
– climate change
– communications and marketing
– sustainable investment / economic development
– environmental entrepreneurs and start-ups
– parks and green spaces
– and more!

An advanced Guest Directory that includes information about our guests, as well as tips for how to make the most of conversations at Green Networking Night will be provided two days in advance to students who pre-register on Handshake.

Green Networking Night is sponsored by: The Career Center, Emory’s Office of Sustainability Initiatives, the Department of Environmental Sciences, and a generous grant from The High Five Foundation.

See you on February 13th—bring a friend!
