I find that whenever I talk to folks, I end up wanting to give them a list of useful URLs from which to glean more information. So, I figure, rather than give a page of links, why not give one URL that they can use to click away to their heart’s delight. Here is that link.
Social-Impact Career Resources: Net Impact–an international nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire, educate, and equip individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world–has created a range of great overview of various social-impact careers.

This page is a place where I can link to some of my favorite contributors to the conversation.
