B Academics is a network of educators and researchers from around the world who are committed to accelerating the sustainable business movement by studying and teaching about the B Economy (the global movement of B Corporation certification and Benefit corporations).
This panel will feature faculty who run experiential learning programs where students work as consultants, helping companies complete the BIA and apply for B Corporation certification. This helps to build a more inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economic system for all people and the planet. Tips and strategies for how students can connect with and land impact careers working for certified B Corps and Benefit Corporations will be shared. Additionally, the panel will discuss how businesses can leverage these opportunities to connect with students as potential (incredibly driven and enthusiastic) interns and future talent.
