On February 9th, MBA student and Fowler Family Fellow John Turner once again presented on behalf of the Fowler Center at the annual Social Justice Teach-In hosted by Case Western Reserve University’s Center for Civic Engagement & Learning and Social Justice Institute along with the InterReligious Task Force on Central America. The Teach-In hosted well over 600 students and community members for a selection of workshops on a broad range of topics. The Fowler Center presentation, AIM2Flourish – Making the Private Sector a Force for Social Good, introduced more than a dozen participants to Appreciative Inquiry, Business as an Agent of World Benefit, the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development and embedded sustainability. The group then delved into six stories about positive innovations. These stories are part of AIM2Flourish’s Northeast Ohio initiative, AIM2FlourishNEO: Epoch Pi, Rustbelt Riders, Evergreen Cooperatives, LEEDCo, BT Solar and BrownFlynn (now part of ERM). Workshop participants read and discussed the AIM2Flourish stories with time left over to ask questions about business-for-good and snap a few group photos with their favorite Global Goals!
