Pursuing careers and lives that create meaningful change isn’t easy. We feature interviews of Millennials succeeding at the front lines of equity and social justice work. They authentically share the stories of the challenges, successes, and setbacks they face professionally and personally. You’ll find hope, insights, and inspiration in the questions they ask of themselves, the world, and how they can create change. These young professionals share the bond of being alumni of the Thinking Beyond Borders programs, where they developed their capacities for empathy, humility, and passionate pursuit of purpose.

Each one of these interviewees offers great insight into what it's been like to try to follow their passion.
Rare insight for recent graduates
This podcast provides rare insight into how young people balance their personal values with their career goals from a very practical, first-hand persepctive. I found the first two episode to be engaging and rooted in reality - the interviewees do a good job of telling their stories without falling into cliches or bland self-help advice. I look forward to following along with the new episodes as they come out.
Restorative justice episode
Just listened to the interview with Anthony about restorative justice, and it was super interesting. When it comes to social justice issues the criminal justice system has always interested me a lot, so it was interesting to hear Anthony's perspective. It also was cool to hear how Anthony was involved in it to inspire myself to get involved as well. I would recommend this podcast to anyone whose curious about looking deeper into issues and hear others thoughts about these complex issues!
