Liza Munk
01:05:24
Hi Everyone! This is Like in Santa Barbara, CA. I’d love to hear from any speaker willing to share, what a typical work day is like for you - what kinds of tasks take up your time?
Rebecca Gackler
01:05:25
Hello! I'm Rebecca in Brighton, Michigan. I was wondering what advice you would have for someone who is hunting for their first full-time position in the nonprofit sector?
Claire Fitzgerald
01:05:27
For Marichel (or anyone!) – how do you keep yourself energized when your job is something you’re so passionate about? I’m interested in the fair trade movement, so I loved hearing about UFW’s advocacy work for fair wages and treatment for farmers! -Claire from Baltimore
Liza Munk
01:06:21

Rhianna Hackley (she/her)
01:06:47
Hello! My name is Rhianna and I am currently living in Fort Bragg, CA. I am curious about how each of you initiated your involvement in the nonprofits you mentioned?
Josh Curtis
01:06:51
My name is Josh, I'm based out of Arlington, Virginia. I'm curious about how each of you chose whether to "take the leap" at those winds in your careers. Were there more obvious next steps that were on the table? What kind of information did you gather to decide which way to go?
Karleigh Groves
01:08:13
Thank you all for being a part of this! My name is Karleigh, and I am currently in Chicago, IL for my MA from the University of Chicago. I am a psychology student interested in social perception, prejudice, and stereotyping. After my MA, I am interested in working in a nonprofit — what are recommendations you have for finding work in these organizations? What are things I can do during my time in graduate school to prepare for a job in nonprofit and advocacy work?

Sarah Carter
01:09:02
Thank you panelists for sharing your experiences! My name is Sarah and I'm in Rockford, Illinois. I'd love to know how you make a career in the nonprofit sector financially viable for yourself. Have you ever encountered expectations that you should be giving your time for free?
Miranda Gruber
01:09:02
Hey, Miranda in Des Moines here - I felt great purpose in community engagement/education work. Do you have advice for someone wanting to break into that field/continue to do that work mid-pandemic?
Philip Grayson
01:09:18
“Let them see you sweat.” So counter-intuitive yet important. Thank you, Steen!
Isabel Cruz (she/ella)
01:09:29
Hi, this is Isabel in Denver CO! I’m curious how you make time or hold mental space to keep learning, growing, and creating with the careers you’ve pursued? Any tips on burnout?
Arielle Levin
01:09:56
Arielle Levin here, currently out of Washington DC. For those of us with interdisciplinary policy passions (mine fall into social policy) and are fresh to the field, would you recommend honing in to one specific policy topic and specializing, or alternatively, follow the passion for all and see where it goes?
Alondra M. Carter
01:12:17
To all of the panelists, hello! This is Alondra, from Riverside, CA. What would each of you consider to be your most important or most used characteristic in the world of non-profits? How does working in a job that you are passionate about impact this characteristic?

Jonah Kasdan
01:14:18
Hi! My name is Jonah, and I’m calling in from Los Angeles, CA. This questions is for everyone, as you’ve all taken some twists and turns in your career paths. I spent the past year working as an organizer, but am looking to transition into a more communications focused role. How have you managed to shift between different roles, and do you have any recommendations for parlaying experience from one field to another?
Tracy Graham
01:15:33
Tracy - North Reading, MA. I went to Clark University, majored in Spanish, and earned my 5th year MBA in sustainability & social change. I work at an environmental consulting firm as an accounts payable manager, do Spanish translation/interpretation, and am on the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion committee. I want to do more hands on project-based work and collaborating with people and clients on the ground level. I would love to work internationally and with diverse, underrepresented populations like I did for a contract at Seven Hills Foundation where we started a library and brought 22,000 books to Sierra Leone. However, it is challenging to make that move from G&A to environmental, climate-based, & social work, which I think is the greatest issue of our time. What is your advice for switching career paths from accounting (being pidgeon-holed) and the functionality of the company to nonprofit and project-based work?
