Organised by St Paul's Institute in partnership with the LSE Faith Centre, LSE Life and LSE Careers. An expert panel discuss the nature of "meaningful work" in a public event to launch a new series of LSE student workshops to explore purpose and meaning in the world of work. 

Is it possible to reconcile your values with the demanding profit-driven structures of modern professional life? Are some sectors more meaningful than others or does every career have the potential for meaningful work? How can our values and/or beliefs best inform our work and make a positive difference in the world?
