A Few Good Links 👍
1. “Some companies go looking for a cause. We were a cause looking for a product.”

Magatte Wade, founder of Skin is Skin, is on a mission to fight discrimination. She believes the best way to do that is through a brand that inspires people to change. 

A lip balm that wants to act as your conscience? WHY NOT? 💄

Check out this short video and article to learn more about Magatte and how to build a brand with a higher purpose. 

2. B Lab recently announced their annual “Best for the World” winners—the B Corps creating the greatest impact based on their verified scores in five impact areas (community, customers, environment, governance, and workers).

5. “When [digital] spaces aren’t inclusive, we suffer—and so does the effectiveness of our communication.”

Thankfully, Janel Torkington has created this super helpful guide with 40+ tools and tactics to help us learn how to facilitate inclusive and effective online discussions. 🧰
