About Us

On the 3rd Thursday of each month at 11 a.m. Eastern, Glenn Barth interviews a business leader whose business model focuses on benefitting the local city or community where the business is located or in the communities the business serves. These leaders go beyond typical Corporate Social Responsibility and build their business model around a plan for moving the needle on a big social need. Below are recorded podcasts from our recent calls.
