What is Work on Purpose?

Echoing Green’s Work on Purpose program inspires and equips you to do work that is right for you and good for the world.
Rooted in the best life- and work-practices of some of the world’s most successful changemakers, Work on Purpose provides you with stories, activities, frameworks, and a like-minded community to support you in building your own meaningful life and career. Together, we can revolutionize how we work, how we live, and how we contribute to the creation of a better world.
The organizing framework for Work on Purpose is one simple formula: Heart + Head = Hustle. In other words, if you can align that which moves you with that which you have to uniquely offer the world, you can create a heightened, impact-driven life and career that really “hustles.”

What should I ask questions about?
You can ask questions about anything related to living a meaningful life! We built Work on Purpose to be a safe place to build lives with positive social impact. We think it’s important to ask big questions about how to spend our time and energy at work and in all parts of our lives. Ask any question that helps you understand how to find fulfillment or better understand your opportunities to create positive impact in the world.
