Podcast: What’s Up Bainbridge:
Talk at Library on diversity and inclusion in entrepreneurship
In this podcast, BCB host Christina Hulet speaks with Jill Bamburg, president and co-founder of Pinchot University (formerly known as Bainbridge Graduate Institute).
Jill talks about a speaker series that is open to Bainbridge community members at the local Library — the BASE lecture series (Building a Sustainable Economy).
This is a monthly series featuring business and community leaders from around the country who present topics pertaining to social justice, environmental protection, sustainability, corporate responsibility and related concerns.
The first in this year’s series is: “Diversity and Inclusion in Social Entrepreneurship”.
It will be held on Friday, November 13 at Bainbridge Public Library from 5:30-7:00pm and will include two speakers: Effenus Henderson, President and CEO of HenderWorks, and Janis Puracal, Co-Founder and Co-Chair of the Oregon Innocence Project. They will talk about building bridges across diverse communities and the value of inclusion in the workplace.
Jill talks about why this is such an important and timely conversation in our country today and how it ties to the mission of Pinchot University. The event is sponsored by several organizations including the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce, Bainbridge Public Library, Sustainable Bainbridge, YES! Magazine and Pinchot University.
