"Take risks and do things that are more unusual."

That's Tom Adams, Director of Impact at Acumen. He talked to us about what it’s like to work in social impact, the future of impact measurement, and the best career advice he’s ever received. ‪#‎FacesofAcumen‬ ‪#‎InsideImpactCareers‬ http://plusacumen.org/blog/inside-social-impact-careers-tom-adams/
Tom talks about a career in social impact, what he looks for in new hires, why he's excited about lean data and what it’s like to work with so many Americans.
