Green Careers Conference 2019
Please join the Roberts Environmental Center …
On February 1, 2019, for our annual Green Careers Conference at Claremont McKenna to energize students around the breadth of environmental career possibilities and foster a discussion on key environmental issues and solutions. A keynote presentation and panel presentations by green industry leaders will highlight the opportunities and challenges facing green jobs today in environmental law, consulting, nonprofits and corporate enterprise.
Our goal for the Green Careers Conference is to give students a broad perspective of the careers available in the environmental field. Our team strives to show students how environment and economic objectives can be simultaneously achieved. Ultimately, we hope to motivate students to pursue careers that contribute to positive environmental change and start a tradition of engagement and leadership in environmental professions at the Claremont Colleges.
