NC State B Corp Clinic – Spring 2020 Kickoff
February 7 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Have you ever wondered how companies become B Corps? B Corps—like Ben & Jerry’s, New Belgium Brewing, and Patagonia—are “for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.” For the last four years, the NC State B Corp Clinic, a multi-school collaborative program has helped North Carolina companies achieve B Corp certification by working with teams of graduate and undergraduate students from universities across the state.
Companies are matched with a team of students (intentionally designed to include students from multiple schools and disciplines) to go through the assessment process and identify strategies they can take to improve their B Corp scores. Students gain hands-on consulting experience and the chance to learn about social and environmental impact assessment and sustainable business models.
To learn more about the timeline, process, and companies involved, students can:
- attend in person at HQ Centennial Campus
- participate virtually via Zoom videoconference from anywhere (see Zoom details below)
- can’t make any of the above but still interested in learning more (there’s an option for that too, we’ll follow up with a recording of the kickoff)
After the kickoff, we’ll send everyone a recording of the kickoff and an invitation to apply to participate in the Clinic.
