The Most Memorable Moments From More Than Profit Season 1
We had such a great time learning and listening during More Than Profit Season 1. There were so many important topics discussed and lessons learned. Below, you’ll find a couple of my favorite moments of each podcast to remind you of some meaningful conversations or to give you a sneak peek of the episodes if you haven’t had a chance to listen yet. We are working hard to put together Season 2 and are excited to launch in the Fall! Until then, make sure to check out some amazing moments from Season 1.
From impact investing and ESG, to affordable housing, to a special episode on COVID19, Season 1 was an exciting journey. Personally, I was able to both connect with several friends and build new relationships through this journey – and in every conversation, I learned a lot! I was able to see each person and their work from a new perspective and gain a newfound appreciation for their individual stories that have shaped their life’s work to-date.
Isn’t that what it’s all about – taking time to listen to one another’s stories? Perhaps we might understand perspectives different from our own a bit more? Perhaps we would step in and step up when we see something around us that needs to change? We may still disagree, but we can begin to understand more if we listen more. To grow in empathy, we have to start there.
We would love to hear from you as well. What were some of your favorite moments?
