As a strong supporter of social enterprises, the opportunity to work for Wider Sense, a certified B Corp and mission driven enterprise, grabbed me. Working for diverse clients such as multinational corporations, foundations and individuals on important issues like economic development, environmental protection or social justice, gives my work a great sense of purpose and satisfaction.
