The ABCs of B Corps
In 2006, a new path was developed for mission-driven companies to combine profit and purpose with meaning -- leading to the creation of Certified B Corporations. According to the nonprofit B Lab, companies certified as B Corps “strive to solve environmental, communal and global challenges.”
B Corps achieve this by supporting their employees in completing their mission, holding themselves accountable, and aspiring to benefit all.
A few B Corps that you may know: Ellevate, Athleta, New Belgium Brewing, Ben and Jerry’s, and Techstars.
Kristy Wallace, CEO of Ellevate, will share her first-hand experience of Ellevate becoming eligible, certifying, and reaping the benefits of being a B Corps. She'll be joined by Meg Barnhart, Founder of Zen of Slow Cooking & Emily Lonigro, Founder of LimeRed, both leaders in the BCorp movement. They'll speak to B Corps' mission to bring greater transparency & purpose to business.
