We kicked off this new month by gathering again for our Online Family Brunch! Another round of our monthly event exclusive to ECHN members. This is our moment to catch up, share and inspire and we also have the opportunity to hear great stories: just like in good family meetings! Thank you again for all of you who are a part of this beautiful community and make these events so warm and inspiring.
Last Friday, also April’s fool, we had the team from ATÖLYE (in Istanbul, Turkey) for something a little different… They have recently got the B Corp certification and they shared with us why they went through this process and what exactly does it mean!
For those of you who haven’t heard of this incredible space yet, ATÖLYE is a community-powered creative services organization. Through strategy and design, they help organizations tackle complex challenges and create lasting impact.
And what exactly is this B Corp thing? The B Corporation (also B Lab or B Corp) is a private certification of for-profit companies of their “social and environmental performance”. This means that a business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices and input materials.
Thank you again to much to Melissa, Emel and Atilim who answered all the curious and pouring questions from our members, it was so inspiring!
