Oh, November. We instinctively associate you with crisp air, the holiday buzz starting to creep into our consciousness, reunions with loved ones, and of course, giving thanks. Yet we challenge our community to stop and consider how the notion of GIVING can be the purest example of being grateful. And who better to lead us into what giving really means, than Brit Gilmore, President of The Giving Keys, the LA based social enterprise, jewelry and lifestyle brand whose primary mission is to help employ others impacted by homelessness.
With a 288k+ Insta following, a team exceeding 70 employees, and revenues of $8.6 million last year, it’s obvious that The Giving Key's passion for merging fashion and philanthropy is speaking to consumers. Loudly.
Check out our interview with Brit below.
It is no secret that B Corporations are better companies – better for workers, better for communities and better for the environment. At CCLA, we see a the B Corporation movement and certification as an invaluable tool for furthering the practice of Conscious Capitalism.
This is why on October 10th, 2017 we hosted our first of many B Corp focused educational initiatives in collaboration with B Local, at the gorgeous Macher offices in Venice. And how lucky are we to have a thriving B Corporation community here in Los Angeles?! B Local LA is a community devoted to knowledge sharing through best practices and creating a more sustainable community in Los Angeles.
Attendees were led through a deep dive into B Corp organizations, step by step they were guided through the assessment process and were given valuable insights into the nuances of becoming a B Corp. Certification processes can always be challenging, but thanks to this workshop, for all of those attending, the process was much faster and easier as they received support and guidance from those who have gone through it already.
Many thanks to our gracious hosts including presenter, Andrea Chase, Marketing & Product Director, Falcon Waterfree Technologies, Francesco Barbera of Barbera Corporate Law, P.C., and Derek Hydon, President at Macher.
