“The B Corp re-certification process is a strategic opportunity to engage your team and and drive success across the triple bottom line” says Advance Humanity consultant, Kelsa Summer Roidt. On October 24th, Kelsa lead a workshop for the Boston B Corp community on the re-certification process, sponsored by the B Local Boston Board. Representatives from nine Boston area B Corps gathered at the Impact Hub to learn tools for recertification and share advice and stories from their own B Corp journey.
Currently, more than one-third of U.S. states do not have laws in place to ensure that employees are paid for the time they need to take off from work in order to vote. That means an hourly worker would have to forgo 5% of their earnings to take two hours from their schedule to vote. Nobody should have to choose between their paycheck and their right to vote.
This was my first Champion's Retreat and the experience was so much more impactful than I could ever have imagined. I got to connect with so many wonderful and like-minded people, and it was simply awe inspiring. Everyone was so eager to share ideas and support each other with resources, ideas, or just warm words. I definitely cannot wait to see everyone again in Los Angeles next year!
