Description

Join Georgia Social Impact Collaborative (GSIC) for a happy hour in partnership with B Local Georgia. At this event, we'll discuss the movement for benefit corporation legislation in the state of Georgia and hear from several companies registered as public benefit corporations and certified (or getting certified) as B Corps.

Speakers include:

  • Jeff Woodward, Taylor English Duma LLP and Georgia Social Impact Collaborative
  • Nathan Stuck, Ad Victoriam Solutions and B Local Georgia
  • Matt Stevens, Creature Comforts
  • Jenn Leahy, Dragon Army
  • Zeb McLaurin, Goodr


Making a profit and making a difference don’t have to be mutually exclusive ideas. B Local Georgia is a collection of for-profit companies each dedicated to and guided by this core principle—but it’s not just talk.

B Lab® has created a rigorous set of metrics to measure corporate citizenship, environmental consciousness, accountability, and transparency that every member of B Corp, B Local Georgia member has either met or exceeded. These policies ensure that we all practice what we preach and hold us accountable for the welfare of our local communities, our state and our world.

By joining B Local Georgia, you’re saying to your customers, employees, and community that you’re there to make a difference. Together, we’re creating a future where businesses operate as a positive influence on society, and that’s something we think is worth celebrating. So join us, won’t you? Challenge yourself and your business to B Better.


GSIC happy hours are meant for idea sharing, resource exchanging and connecting among Atlanta's social entrepreneurs, nonprofit and civic leaders, community advocates, grantmakers, and mission investors.
