I guess I can finally announce this change in blog land, since my desk is being moved tomorrow! I've accepted a new position at my company- Global Environmental Manager! I'll be in charge of all of Expeditors' sustainability strategy and policy, which is super crazy exciting! I'll also get to work with customers to track their carbon footprint, come up with strategies to optimize our logistics network to reduce it, and work with partners to reduce our overall impact on the environment.
Not going to lie- for the first time in my professional life, I'm really excited to wake up and go to work every day. Feels like I'm finally making a difference with my job, which is what I set out to do with my womens studies degree 8 years ago.
Fuck yeah. I might go out and ride bikes and bring home 2 IPAs and a bag of chips, but I also help 8 Fortune 500 company's reduce their carbon footprint. Who cares if I don't have my shit together personally?
This week I also got to ride down a 100 foot slip and slide, wrestle in a pool of jello, and ride with 2000 other people. Life is good right now.
