Kori Joneson

Premium Member, Leader, EcoSocio Entrepreneur

“I became a Net Impact LA Professional Chapter Member and Leader to get involved in my community, share my knowledge and skills, enhance my professional experience, meet inspiring people and help others make connections,” said Coowner and Director, Kori Joneson of Lead The Difference. Kori currently serves as NILAC’s volunteer EcoSocio Impact Project Lead helping professionals, social entrepreneurs and organizations use business to create a sustainable impact. When asked who she admires for making a sustainable impact in the world today Kori said “the grassroots social entrepreneurs that are popping up all over the world. These people really get that businesses are a part of a community and are responsible for not only thriving and bettering themselves but their communities as well. My hopes are that one day the term “social entrepreneur” will not exist because this approach to business will be the norm for all organizations.” For the full interview click HERE.
