Impact From Home | Episode #20 Rise of the Chief Sustainability Officer

February 26 @ 16:45 - 17:30 CET

Our next ‘Impact From Home’ features Ellen Weinreb, Founder and Managing Director of Weinreb Group Sustainability Consulting.

Ellen will share her decades-long experience helping companies across the globe to find the best sustainability talent and the more recent rise of the ‘Chief Sustainability Officer’.

Ellen Weinreb has 23 years of experience working in ESG, CSR and sustainability, with deep expertise helping leading global companies find the best professionals to fill environmental, social and governance roles in nearly every business function. Tapping into her vast global network of experienced sustainability leaders and rising stars, she works one on one with clients from the recruitment stage to placement and beyond to ensure the best fit.

NOTE: This session will be held a different time than our normal 12:00 CET lunchtime as Ellen is kindly joining bright and early from the US West Coast.

A noted thought leader on talent in sustainability, Ellen is a regular contributor to Forbes and Huffington Post, and she writes the “Talent Show” column for GreenBiz. She is also a frequent speaker at conferences including GreenBiz, Net Impact, Fortune Brainstorm Green, UN Global Compact, and Sustainable Brands. In 2010, Ellen received the Count Me In Micro to Millions Award for women entrepreneurs. She was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Cameroon working with coffee farms after she graduated with an Economics Degree from Wellesley college.

This session will be kindly hosted by Cathy Sorbara, PhD, Vice President of Net Impact Amsterdam.

Notes about the ‘Impact From Home’ virtual interview series

Many of us are stuck at home, but the pursuit for positive impact continues!

Every other Friday at noon we’re taking to the internet to introduce you to some of the region (and beyond)’s top impact and sustainability professionals. Join us for virtual conversations via Zoom for the latest perspectives and insights to help you drive your impact mission forward, even from home.

This event is based on Zoom and will be recorded. Please join with your cameras on and curiosity high. We want this to be an interactive and open conversation, so be ready to ask questions.
