    B Corp Series: Mike Brady CEO Greyston Bakery: Baking Brownies to Hire People

    in Culture

    While baking 30,000 lbs of delicious brownies on a daily basis seems like it should be enough, Greyston Bakery's unique Open Hiring is its hallmark and what it is best known for.

    Since its founding in 1982 by Zen Master Bernie Glassman, Greyston, the country’s leading social enterprise, has provided individuals in Southwest Yonkers, NY with employment, skills and resources to lift them out of poverty. Greyston’s unique combination of Open Hiring at the world famous Greyston Bakery and PathMaking services offer a roadmap to assist individuals and families in visualizing and realizing their paths to self-sufficiency. Its spiritually-rooted philosophy fuels community development and a commitment to human growth and potential.

    Greyston's open door hiring policy offers employment opportunities regardless of educational attainment, work history, or past social barriers, such as incarceration, homelessness or drug use. Greyston believes that employment is a first step in an individual’s path toward success.

    Mike Brady, President and CEO of Greyston Bakery, New York's first Benefit Corporation explains how it all works: anyone that comes to the front door of the bakery is given the chance to work, no questions asked. When a job becomes available the next person on our waiting list is given a job. Greyston provides them with resources, personal development tools and training in professional skills to give them the greatest chance for success in their new job. 

    The Voice of Leadership is proud to launch this B Corp Series: For People, Planet and Profit, and even more proud to give the first spot in this ongoing series to one of it's favorite brownies, er, organizations ... Greyston Bakery.

    Linda Lombardo hosts.

    Okokon Udo, A Blogger's Voice: Can You Hear the Cries?

    in Culture

    Okokon Udo's blog begins: Can you hear the cries? Have you tapped into the global channel lately? Are you listening to what is happening? What an intense last couple of months, no, years, we have had. I have been holding my breath, hurting on the inside, sourcing, praying, wishing and hoping. I have been hoping that the level of polarization and extremism that is showing up in national and global discourse can be noticed. And that the awareness can provide us with data. Data about how we suddenly forget to celebrate what’s right with the world and resort to behaviors that are demeaning, marginalizing and plain destructive. And how in that space, boxes suddenly emerge. We become US and they become THEM. And the lines get drawn. And THEY cease to be human. And they become objects (aka enemies). And WE become justified in pointing (words, guns, pens, energy) at them and killing or destroying them, literally and figuratively.

    Host Linda Lombardo and guest Okokon Udo talk about the lines of separation. Okokon is a global leadership consultant, facilitator and coach, and founder and president of Distinctive Leader Options, Inc.
