"I signed up for Mission Driven after graduating from my masters program. This workshop provided me with tools to further explore my strengths and to really spell out what I was looking for in a career. My favorite days of the workshop were the speakers Ryan brought in. Each presenter was extremely inspiring, and gave me confidence to push myself outside of my comfort zone."
- Steph, Outreach Markets Coordinator at REI
"I highly recommend the Mission Driven for those professionals who are drawn to the social impact space but who are unclear about where their skills are best served. As a Mission Driven alum, I now have clear insight about what skills I can offer in this space, invaluable connections with fellow participants, and direction on how to move forward in my career." - Patricia, Business Development at Kay Tita
