Join VBSR and B Corp Consultant Rebecca Coffey for a 2-part virtual workshop series, From B to Z: A Deep Dive on B Corp Certification. B Corps represent the highest level of social and environmental impact in business today. The B Corp Certification process and the B Impact Assessment provides businesses with a framework and tools to measure and quantify their impact, as well as identify opportunities for continued growth.

The first virtual workshop is designed to orient businesses who are interested in or considering becoming a B Corp to the process, intentions, benefits, and logistics of the certification process.

The second virtual workshop will be a space for in-depth discussions and specific questions about aspects of the B Impact Assessment as well as the Re-Certification Process, legal update, impact reporting, B Lab reviews and other related topics.
