Just a quick message to share an article I recently published in the Idaho Advocate, Enforcing the "Benefit" Part of Benefit Corporations." A benefit corporation is a legal entity form that creates a duty for managers to consider a wide range of stakeholders and to strive to create positive social and environmental impacts. Social entrepreneurs around the country are choosing this form and doing amazing work! My July 2019 article covers issues related to accountability and enforcement - what happens when the promises are not being fulfilled or results are not being achieved? Check it out on the Idaho Advocate website or by going to my Education page.
My next article entitled, "Entity Selection for Social Entrepreneurs" will be published this fall and I will send it to you! Please contact me if you want to discuss how to incorporate your commitment to social good into your legal business framework!
PS: You're invited to the SOFT OPENING for my new plant-based apothecary, The Vervain Collective! This has been my passion project for the last 2 years and we're finally ready to open up to our community and are super happy to be inside the Roots Zero Waste Market!
Thank you for reading! I hope you are finding plenty of opportunities to feel joyful!
While I've had writer's block for 4 years, one of my favorite things to do is think, and I love exchanging knowledge with people trying to improve our community. This space is for me to share some of my musings in the hopes of adding more layers to our collective conversation. Please comment and share freely! I'll start writing some new material soon I'm sure!
