How can businesses take part in movements for social and environmental justice? It might seem like a strange question — business is a core driver of negative impacts, from economic inequality to environmental extraction. Yet by examining their practices and changing for the better — and advocating for peers to do the same — businesses can unlock enormous potential for positive change. Activism has a place in corporate boardrooms, and businesses can enable activist work both among their employees and in their actions at a corporate level. In this episode we answer:


  • What does it mean to be a business activist — or an activist business? 
  • How can business activism help companies envision and work toward what is truly needed to improve life for all people and the planet? 
  • How is business activism tied to collective action in the business community, and how can they complement each other? 


Guests include: 

Amanda Gordon, Chief Customer Officer, Future Super

Charmian Love, Co-Founder, B Lab UK; Global Director of Advocacy, Natura & Co. 

Pavithra Ram, Impact Navigator, Tony’s Chocolonely
