In October of 2016, frustrated by what he saw as a lack of strategy in the movement to make business as a force for good, Nathan Havey penned an article proposing how to change the paradigm of business. In the same month, Amanda Kathryn Roman, motivated by similar frustrations outlined a strikingly similar idea for a strikingly similar purpose. For the next three years Nathan and Amanda continued to make their contributions to the movement and meet many of its innovative pioneers and leading practitioners.
