ProGRESS – Leora Shlasko, Laura Yeates and the Sustainable Recruitment Alliance

ProGRESS is the new podcast that brings you careers inspiration direct from people working and teaching in Green, Ethical, Sustainable and Socially Responsible sectors (the GRESS of ProGRESS). Every episode features a guest talking to podcast host and long-time journalist Sandra Kessell about the job they are doing now and the path that got them into it. They offer real-world insights into following in their footsteps while detailing their work and life experiences – all with an encouraging outlook. Whatever your career plans, whatever your age, there are good green, ethical, sustainable and socially responsible stories to be heard here.

Laura Yeates has changed the face of recruitment for early careers not just in the legal world, but across the city and really shone a spotlight on unconscious bias and untapped talent. During lockdown Laura founded the Sustainable Recruitment Alliance (SRA), which is driving eco-friendly change to early recruitment by encouraging early career recruiters to decrease their emissions.

Leora Shlasko is the newest team member at the Sustainable Recruitment Alliance and is its Sustainability Impact Advisor. After studying at Vassar College in New York, Leora completed a masters in environmental governance at the University of Oxford, where, among other studies, she researched the social impact of environmental policies on Bluefin Tuna in Mediterranean and Japan.
