Networks

A Network is a self-organized group aligned on impact, industry, role, region, or identity.

There are many Networks within the B Corp ecosystem and they are all volunteer-led, by leaders from within the B Corp Community. Networks represent a powerful opportunity for you to engage more deeply with fellow B Corp community members.

Below is a list of the current Networks in the U.S. & Canada B Corp community. To learn more about their areas of focus and how to get engaged, please see the links below. Please note, some Networks are exclusively for B Corp Community members, while others are open for all to join.

If you work at or own a B Corp and you do not see a Network that represents your needs, please see this resource on how to start a new Network. If we can help support your Network engagement, or if you’d like your Network featured on this page, please email Becca Quirk at bquirk@usca.bcorporation.net.
