Description

What does business look like when women leaders are elevated?

Out of the Fortune 500 companies, only 32 have female CEOs. Only 20% of all business investment goes into women-led businesses — and it’s worse for businesses owned by trans women and women of color. The list of inequalities continues.

These are issues that B Corp certification addresses to steward business to a more equal and inclusive future. Join us to hear from women leaders of B Corps about how to build better businesses and the unique potential of women-led businesses.

The Bedside Chats are ongoing monthly series with Leesa, B Lab, and Be Social Change, bringing together innovative B Corps and businesses.
