Looking for an impactful job, funding and other resources to further your career? Start here.
This list is not exhaustive. I am limited by what I don’t know. If you have a resource to share, leave a comment. This is a living resource (aka it will be updated).
If you are interested in advertising a social impact related job (including working on an audio show with social themes) or you own podcast service as an independent creator / freelancer (e.g. producing, editing, transcribing etc.), the flat rate is $15 in the Classifieds section of the weekly newsletter.
