Jasmine Sanders is the Executive Director of Our Climate, an organization that mobilizes young people to educate elected officials on science-based, equitable climate policy solutions that build a livable world, and she joins me on today's podcast to discuss how her career led her to this position.
This interview is a two-part interview. In part 1 (today's episode), Jasmine tells us about her career and how she made the decisions at specific moments in her life that led her to where she is today. In part 2, we discuss the action that Our Climate supports and how we can better engage with our elected officials through story-telling.
Jasmine is what I like to call a go-getter. She has been highly motivated throughout her career to find a job that will establish her legacy. In this interview, Jasmine tells me of three specific moments that led her to pivot in her career and how she made those pivots.
She discusses how she used networking offline and online (through LinnkedIn) to build a support group of professionals in each area of her career. Now she is the Executive Director of an organization that engages with the masses to talk to their elected officials.
The methods Jasmine used to pivot and build her career are often overlooked by today's marine conservationists. This is a great episode to listen to if you are seeking a career in any environmental field.
Stay tuned for Part 2 in the next episode.
