Liz Maw

Executive Director,
Net Impact

San Francisco, United States

In 100 years, we simply won’t work for companies that don’t represent our core personal values, no matter how much they pay us.

In 100 years, we will bring our dreams of changing the world to work with us every day. Our lives will be in balance.  Not because we’ll work less, sleep more, and exercise daily – we’ll still be working too hard for that! But the work we do will align with our values and purpose as people.

Today, too many of our jobs are focused on short-term results, money, and ego. We work hard from nine to five (and longer) to make products we don’t really care about for companies we don’t truly believe in. And then we go home and try to be a better person within our family and community. But in 100 years, we simply won’t work for companies that don’t represent our core personal values, no matter how much they pay us.

The workforce of the future will drive sustainability, impact, and growth from all levels as a matter of course. The billions of working hours we collectively put into our day jobs will now be invested in addressing the problems that endanger our world, and these hours at work will help to solve them. With a more engaged workforce, our communities and companies will thrive, leading to greater prosperity for all stakeholders, not merely for shareholders. And because of this, we’ll all have more fun. The human spirit will thrive. Because who wants to work for anything less?
