Our Story

WeTheChange began with a clarion call to all B Corp women CEOs asking, “What can we do together that none of us can do alone?

Sara Schley, CEO of Seed Systems, with the generous support and backing of Eileen Fisher, CEO of EILEEN FISHER, convened over 80 B Corp women leaders in 2018 to discuss that question and take action.

The result: Rose Penelope Yee, CEO of Green Retirement, and Kim Coupounas, B Lab’s Global Ambassador, stepped up to co-found WeTheChange with Sara in 2019.

WeTheChange’s founding members committed to creating a new economy in service to all, where women don’t need to fight for a seat at the table. And they realized that this would require creating a new table: one that’s radically inclusive and richly regenerative.
