OWS23: Three Ways you can Change the World from Your Spare Bedroom  Professional Membership Required

What makes your heart sing? It’s probably the thing that will be your legacy and how people know you and will remember you by. Chances are it’s not your nine-to-five job. What if you could find a way to give back in a meaningful way and amplify your impact by linking it to your day job? Jon speaks from experience as a mid-level corporate manager who realized that his legacy was falling short of his expectations. What started as a staff meeting agenda item eventually took his work to refugee camps around the world and to college students in over 90 countries. It’s never too late and it’s never too early for you to create something incredible that you want to be remembered by. Jon’s inspiring story will provide solid guidance on how you can get started and rally others to your passion.

All of these segments have the potential to open up pipelines of millions of employees.
