How do I set goals for the Inclusive Economy Challenge in the B Impact Assessment?

The Inclusive Economy Challenge is a call to action for Certified B Corps to make concrete improvements to their business practices in pursuit of a more inclusive economy.

B Lab has pulled ~30 questions from the B Impact Assessment into a separate Inclusive Economy Metric Set that capture how businesses can be more inclusive and equitable in their workplace practices, governance, supply chain, and environmental practices. Participating B Corps choose three of those questions, set an improvement goal for each one, and work alongside your fellow B Corps to try to reach those goals by August 30, 2019.

You can now set your Inclusive Economy Challenge goals directly in the B Impact Assessment! Here is an overview for how to do so.
