For companies doing the necessary work to incorporate inclusion, fairness, and opportunity into their operations, gathering the courage to start can be the biggest challenge. As Polina Peg of Certified B Corporation Round Peg says on B The Change:

“We need to stop looking at companies as good and bad, ‘us’ and ‘them.’ … The real goal should be to encourage every business to work consistently toward the beneficial side of the spectrum.”

This week, B The Change Weekly offers resources, examples and encouragement to guide and inform your company’s inclusion journey.
