#7 All this is interesting. But so what?
Use our group to expand your circle:
- Know only a few vegans in your field? We can help you find connections by location, industry or company;
- Once you meet new vegans, start the conversation – brainstorm, exchange ideas and discuss potential collaboration. See the magic unfold;
- It should go both ways. Invite your vegan colleagues to our LinkedIn network if they are not yet members;
Consider starting an initiative at your company to make it more vegan-friendly:
- For ideas and know-how, download our free Vegan Leaders Playbook;
- Enroll in our free 6-month Corporate Initiatives Support Program;
- Use our LinkedIn discussion forum (private and visible only to members) to bring up topics, ask questions, share your observations and success stories and more;
