DT | Business for Good: KC Snapshot and Resources
Create a more sustainable, earth-friendly business in Business for Good — a three-part series from Central Exchange and Sami Aaron, EnviroTips. No matter your stage of career or size of business, you’ll be equipped with simple steps for big impact. You’ll leave ready to influence your organization and your own life. Each session of this three-part series will stand alone, but attendance at all three sessions is strongly encouraged.
Learn about local Kansas City business organizations who prioritize people, planet and profit through education, support and programming. This second session of Business for Good will connect you to local resources to continue your journey toward sustainability.
Sami Aaron is the founder of the nonprofit, The Resilient Activist, a community resource for all things environmental and nature-connected in the Kansas City area.
In order to step fully into her environmental stewardship role, she shuttered her company, Software Management Specialists, in 2017 after more than 35 years as a custom database developer.
Her experience as a K-State Extension Master Naturalist has spurred her understanding of the interconnectivity between nature and humanity, with an eye towards restoration and protection of natural areas and the wildlife that inhabits it. She founded the naturalists' team that manages the Pollinator Prairie in Olathe KS, a restored toxic waste superfund site that is now a demonstration area for growing native plants in suburban gardens.
Sami is a yoga and meditation teacher who focuses on the emotional and physical benefits of time spent in nature and the important connection we humans have with the natural world.
