What is it like working for giant corporations? What is it like holding corporate executives responsible for their impact on society? Nature N8 sits down with Christine Bader, former head of CSR for Amazon, and before that, a long-term employee at BP. We discuss how Christine’s experiences in Indonesia, China, and the U.K. led her to revelations about sustainability and work culture, and where we can begin to think about the life we really want. Now, Christine is the co-founder of The Life I Want, a story-telling project reimagining a future of work that works for all.
