Gig economy poster

A generation ago, finding a job after graduation was about interviewing for a 9:00 to 5:00 career opportunity. Today, graduating students have to find their way through a maze of contract work, part-time jobs, short-term positions, side hustles, consulting opportunities and entrepreneurial ventures. To understand the exciting – and terrifying! – world of the gig economy, this event brings together a group of presenters who’ve found a way to survive and thrive in this new reality. Join us on Tuesday March 5th from 5:00-7:00pm at EV2 2002!

Managing air pollution, toxic substances, and climate change is a complex, linked sustainability challenge. To better inform efforts to address these issues, we need to understand how policies to address emissions translate into societal benefits.
