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.

Skeptical podcast junkie converted
I'll start by saying I was skeptical of this podcast when it was first announced. I am a podcast lover, but I worried that this one might come off as self promotional. I'm pleased to say that these first episodes have been universally relevant and poignant conversations, regardless of your involvement with Thinking Beyond Borders. The guests are grappling with really complex questions about their place in the world while engaging in work that aligns with their values. As someone who is trying to find the same, it's really helpful to hear their journeys, and to remind myself that even (especially) those who may seem like they've figured out what they want to do with their life are still struggling with questions and self reflection. Highly recommend!!
