Graduate Quote: “I continue to explain the value of operating in a socially and environmentally conscious manner and the risk of not doing so. The knowledge I gained from the program and the theory I applied to my work environments prove to me that positively changing behaviour is possible over time. Our livelihoods are inextricably linked to the choices we make about our environment and the people we interact with.”
