The Milkweed Group is a strong believer in living out its mission, values, and passions not just through the work we do, but also through how we “show up” in the world. One of the ways we do so is by shining the spotlight on people and organizations who share our commitment to making a positive difference in the world. We want to honor, applaud, and support their good work, and invite you to do so too! Watch this space for regular updates, learn more, and get involved.
Another way we want to live out who we are is to work toward becoming a “B” (for “public benefit”) Corporation. In short, B corporations are a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. (See www.bcorporation.net for more information.) As we evolve, we hope to become part of a growing movement of people and organizations who are committed to changing how business does business. As an organization that hopes to change the world, we know that we can’t do it alone, and we’re grateful for others who are working toward this same goal. Here’s one way to think about how this fits with what we’re about: “B yourself, and B the change you want to see in the world!”
