Trish Kenlon is a self-described “people connector, community builder and change agent.” And as the founder of Sustainable Career Pathways, she is all about helping people find the employment opportunity of their dreams – whether or not they have an environmental degree. 

Trish spends her waking hours helping answer job seekers’ questions, such as: how do I get that job? Where should I look to find employment opportunities that pay the bills and help fight the climate crisis? What can I do today to make progress toward a new job? 

Trish’s expertise caught the eye of Degrees podcast host Yesh Pavlik Slenk from EDF+Business, the corporate engagement arm of Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). Degrees, a thought-provoking and inspirational new podcast series, is meant for students, young professionals, and anyone who wants to use their job to make a difference in the world.

Excerpt: “We’re building a sense of community where thought-provoking and passionate guests share challenges, pain points and successes, and where listeners are gaining often much-needed inspiration,” says Pavlik Slenk.
