Using Business to Solve Social Problems for Women


Join us as we speak to companies dedicated to using their businesses to solve issues that hold women back in the workforce, such as the gender pay and achievement gaps.

Tue, Jul 12, 2016 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

B corps consider the impact their decisions have on their employees, suppliers, community, consumers, and environment. As a result, the work they do has the potential to reshape the social landscape. 

Join us as we speak to companies dedicated to using their businesses to make the world a better place for women including healthcare innovation, investing in female entrepreneurs, and advancements in careers and education. 

We'll be joined by Meghan Dear, CEO and Founder of Localize and Brittany Nunnink, Marketing Manager at Mamava.

Learn what they are doing to create change.

What are B Corps?

B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.

B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,600 Certified B Corps (Including Ellevate Network) from 42 countries and over 120 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
