If there’s one thing to take away from the 57th episode of the We Are for Good podcast for nonprofits, it is that:
“Empathy is the key to inclusivity and growth!”
Ingrid Gonzalez, Chairwoman and President of Positive Planet in the US
Growth is a word heard constantly in business. Even in the nonprofit world, where growing and being profitable translates to being able to help those in need. How do you grow a nonprofit from the ground up, with no funds in the middle of a pandemic? How do you create a culture of inclusion, where all differences are not only respected and valued, but encouraged?
Listen to the episode to find more out about Positive Planet’s mission to make the world more positive economically, socially, environmentally and democratically and Ingrid’s unique approach to helping the underserved communities by making diversity, equity and inclusion non-negotiable and part of every day – from the third world to the boardroom.
The effort against extreme poverty knows no borders. This is the reason why, in July 2020 and in the midst of the pandemic, Jacques Attali took the initiative to extend the Positive Planet Foundation’s action to the United States. He entrusted this task to Ingrid Gonzalez, appointed President and Chairwoman of Positive Planet US.
This Monday, on November 30, 2020, Ingrid Gonzalez had the honor of meeting Jérémie Robert, Consul General of France in New York. Together, they discussed the work of Positive Planet US, which aims to build and sustain a truly positive economy in the United States and around the world. Shared values drive our commitment: values of inclusion and diversity. Together, we can help promote these values and raise awareness among the French community in the United States and internationally.
