Presidio Graduate School is pleased to announce an educational partnership with B Lab.
The partnership pairs the leading business school for sustainability with the leading certification mark for organizations using business to solve social and environmental challenges.
“Both Presidio and B Lab are dedicated to building the field of sustainable business practitioners and organizations,” said Presidio President and CEO William Shutkin. “Partnering with B Lab makes obvious sense, and we’re looking forward to working with them to grow our respective networks together.”
The organizations will work together to promote PGS’ degree programs among B Corp certified organizations, and provide a 15% scholarship to any employee of a B Corp certified organization who enrolls as a student in a PGS’ degree program.
“B Lab is very excited Presidio is offering special considerations for B Corp employees. Most young workers today want work that connects to a higher purpose.” Said B Lab’s Andy Fyfe. “B Corps are some of the most inspiring companies in our economy, redefining success by competing not just to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world. The collective success of the B Corp community and now with the support of our friends from Presidio, more people will find fulfillment by bringing their whole selves to work.”
B Lab is a nonprofit organization dedicated to using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Lab is the driving force behind B Corp certification, a certification awarded to organizations that meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Today, there is a growing community of more than 850 Certified B Corps from 28 countries and 60 industries working together toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
