Our values
Collaboration, authenticity, respect, dignity, courage and gratitude.

“As B Women network, we are here to help transform our economies, our businesses, our families… to change, to evolve our consciousness. We work collaboratively with the conviction of leaving behind an economy of “winners or losers” to move towards economies of “values” … the values of collaboration, authenticity, respect, dignity, courage and gratitude. Basically to shift by 2030 to “Economies of Care”.

Laura Giadorou Koch
Chief Engagement Officer

Our why

The two burning issues we are facing today, inequality and climate crisis are staggering, and statistics show that “inactivity or passivity” is already costing us and will cost us all a lot more money and suffering. Instead, we should be embarking all together in an authentic sustainable journey. 

In addition, the 17 goals of the 2030 Agenda are very close: we only have 10 years left. The need to act for our sons and daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren is clear and URGENT.

We believe that companies and women entrepreneurs have the ability to critically implement positive changes and create a shift for more inclusive, regenerative and triple bottom line economies.

We recognize the need to move beyond words and CHOOSE to act collaboratively with partners (SDG # 17) and measure our positive actions through our businesses with respect to SDG# 5 – Equity of Gender and SDG # 13 – Climate Action.

We need to move beyond the traditional “just for profits’ ‘ business model and move towards business models that value social and environmental performance as much as profit (stakeholder value). 

To reach the 2030 agenda, from the B Women Networks we propose and influence to incorporate the “Care Economy” in the markets: an economic system in which it is top priority the  genuine caring for people and planet and policies combine the positive elements of both capitalism and socialism.

We already see that our efforts are and will catapult profound changes in ourselves, our families, businesses, governments and society.

With gender diversity we create innovation, opportunities and abundance.

We are responsible for our choices and we must act on behalf of the present and future generations

Only if we work collaboratively for the same goals will we achieve SDGs 2030

Our origins

#WetheChange Women Together movement was started in May 2018 by Sara Schley CEO of Seed Systems, Rose Penelope Yee CEO of Green Retirement and Kim Coupounas from B Lab with the support and inspiration of Eileen Fisher the CEO of Eileen Fisher (Sustainable fashion and B certified company) and her team.  

B Women Solutions is formed from the journey of women entrepreneurs who are part of the B Corp movement and its Latin American chapter Sistema B Internacional. Many of whom signed the #WeTheChange statement, with more than 500 signatories in the United States and Canada since 2019.


The vision and mission of our organization were formed in two face-to-face events in September 2019 in
Mendoza (Argentina) and Amsterdam (Netherlands) with 139 and 55 participating entrepreneurs. In these meetings it was defined that B Women Solutions would focus on the two burning issues of our society: Gender Equity and Climate Action in the markets. 

Today, our network has developed a deep understanding and keeps co-create focused on the “Caring Economy”.
