Business is no longer simply about being profitable.

Progressive CEOs and Boards know that people, culture, diversity and wellbeing are foundational business sustainability.

Your ability to create positive impact beyond profit relies on a different kind of leadership.

To demonstrate our commitment to the future of women in developing countries we donate 5% of our profits to not-for-profit partners in Sri Lanka and India to help underprivileged women access university scholarships and micro finance loans.
