Julia Moulden: A Union Card For Good Works
A climate scientist at the Carnegie Institute, Ken has a way of summing things up in a single phrase. When we were talking about what people need to do to transition to a new role, I ran through a long list of what I'd been hearing from New Radical pioneers. He cut me off with this: "You need to figure out what the union card of your new profession is, and then go and get it." For Ken, whose background is in IT consulting, the union card was a Ph.D. Not a small undertaking, but one he put in perspective with his usual heart-of-the-matter style.
