We became a B Corp to bridge our efforts in supporting the community of women social entrepreneurs with the international community. We believe there are various ways to do good, and also various ways to do good business. Joining the B Corp family was essential in order to collaborate, be heard, learn, and bring diversity in the movement.

The Change We Seek®

We believe in social impact made by women. Influential and connected women with bold solutions to social and environmental issues, can create sustainable opportunities to make the world a better place. Influential and connected women are more likely to be listened to and valued as civic, political and economic citizens. Our mission question: How can we help thousands of women make a positive impact on themselves and on people and planet by enabling them to learn, lead and connect? And what if at least 1 million women social entrepreneurs were connected to change the course of the world? This is the moment we want to see. Why it is important? By taking women out of the shadows, balancing gender equity, equipping them and connecting them to influential stakeholders, we grow the pool of entrepreneurial opportunities, we boost local and global welfare, and we help them to have a positive social impact on their wider networks.
