On this episode of the Idealist Careers Podcast, I chatted with Abby Davisson from Net Impact, a national nonprofit dedicated to engaging business in making the world sustainable, and Yonnie Leung, Principal of Environmental Sustainability for Shared Services at Pacific Gas and Electric Company in California — and who is profiled in the Net Impact career guide.
