August Speaker Series: Sustainability, Responsibility, and the B Corp Movement

Dr. Jessica Yinka Thomas is the director of NCSU’s Business Sustainability Collaborative, which runs the B Corp Clinic. Each semester, her students work in teams to consult businesses toward achieving B Corp status. 

Laura Tripp, co-founder of SEED winner CICIL, will share her experience with the B Corp Clinic and why this certification is important to the company.

This will be part of a broader conversation on how, when, and why a company might start thinking and enacting ESG practices and policies.
