Since so many people have lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m reviving #LetLuce, my curated social impact job blog, to help those individuals who are unemployed. My curated blog features social impact jobs in the following areas: nonprofit, art, museum, philanthropy, social justice, diversity / equity and inclusion, public policy, corporate responsibility, volunteer / community engagement, B Corps, social innovation, environment / sustainability, education, international relations, and human rights. I only include jobs that I find compelling and that have been posted in the past 1-2 weeks. You can forward job opportunities to me at email@example.com & follow @luceinla on Twitter.
