– Tricia Dunlap
What is a B Corp?
“Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.”
Empowering women to pursue their passions
Story Excerpt: “At a B-Corp event in October, 2017, Tricia Dunlap listened as Angela Patton, Executive Director of Girls For A Change, urged Richmond-area B-Corps to help her make “black girls ready for the world, and the world ready for black girls.” Tricia reached out to Angela and asked how Dunlap Law could support GFAC’s mission. The result? A win-win. Angela connected Tricia to Camryn, a GFAC alumna, and Tricia knew right away that both Dunlap Law and Camryn would benefit from a paid summer internship.”
